Located in the original Post Office building, the Fernie Heritage Library is a monument to Fernie community spirit and was one of few structures spared in the fire of 1908. About 90 years after its original construction, the Post Office building underwent an extensive renovation and became the Fernie Heritage Library. Hundreds of thousands of dollars and uncounted hours of volunteer labour turned a worthy but tired city property into a legacy for future generations.

The library offers a variety of programs for kids, and is also the host location for the Booked! event series featuring receptions with prominent Canadian authors.
