Welcome to the Fernie Heritage Library, a relaxing space to spend some leisure time.

Located in the original Post Office building, the Fernie Heritage Library is a monument to Fernie community spirit and was one of the only 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.

Programs are FREE and are available year-round except during Christmas Holidays. Non-residents are very welcome to attend Library programs.

The Library staff look forward to welcoming you in 2018!
