About HRL

High River Library opens up your world by providing resources, technology, and spaces to support lifelong learning, literacy, and strong community connections. 

As members of the Marigold Library System and part of the provincial library network we are able to provide access to over 21 million books, CDs, DVDs, eBooks and other materials. We love feedback so let us know if there's something you'd like to see or do at the library!
