Library Closure

Hughenden Public Library is currently closed to the public in alignment with AHS recommendations to support social distancing. 

We are still providing library materials and services. Materials currently on loan may be kept until we reopen (with no fines), or returned to the book drop at the front of our building. Learn more about the services we are currently offering on our service information page. 

Contact us by phone at 780-856-2435 or email hughendenlibrary@prl.ab.ca  throughout the closure for assistance accessing our resources remotely. Please follow us on Facebook for the latest updates. 

If you don't have a library card, you can sign up by filling out our Online Registration form.

On behalf of the Board and Staff, our thoughts are with our communities at this time. Please stay safe, and let us know if there is anything that we can help you with.
