Lethbridge Public Library
History / Biographical
Meetings to support a library establishment in Lethbridge began in 1910, and a by 1911 a by-law was passed for a provision of a library that would be known as the Lethbridge Public Library. In 1919, the first library board was appointed with W.J. Nelson (Chair), H.W. Meech, and Rev. C.E. Cragg. The first librarians were also introduced that year, which included A.N. Filmer, L. McIndoe, and Arthur Frayne. At that time, a library service was opened in two rooms of the YMCA. The Lethbridge Public Library building was officially opened on January 23, 1922 (building is currently occupied by the Southern Alberta Art Gallery). The new facility, downtown branch, opened in 1974. In 2013, the Crossings Branch was opened on the west side of Lethbridge.
