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.

History / Biographical
Art Batty Construction Ltd. was a construction company in Lethbridge that operated in the 1940s-1960s. The company was primarily involved with residential homes building and design plans in the 1950s. In the mid-1950s, the company also designed and constructed non-residential buildings, like the MacLeod’s Ltd. Lethbridge offices in 1954, and the Glendale Bowl Co. building in 1960. The company collaborated with other local firms, Haddin, Davis & Brown Ltd. and Meech, Mitchell, Robins & Associates to build the Glendale Bowl Company Building in 1960-61, which appears to be the company's last major project. The firm also worked on the Glendale Shopping District, constructed in 1955-56, which included the company’s offices in the area. Art Batty hired A.R. Koshney in 1947, who worked his way up from a carpenter to a company shareholder and Vice-President in 1954 with Art Batty Construction Ltd. A.R. Koshney, worked as the V.P. and Construction Supervisor over all the residential buildings from 1954 onward, then started his own residential construction firm in 1961. The name of Koshney’s firm has changed multiple times over the last several decades; however, most recently the firm is Koshney & Roy Homes, taken over by Koshney’s son.
