Friends of the Carstairs Public Library Society

The Friends Society's goal is to ensure the library not only has enough funding to keep the shelves stocked with new books and resources, but to support extra programs and events for everyone to enjoy.

How have the Friends helped?

Because of the additional funding the Friends have raised the library has been able to:

  • Eliminate Membership Card fees!
  • Almost double the amount of books, audio books, DVD’s, Children book/CD kits etc. that the library adds to the collection annually
  • Purchase the much loved Lego, Lego Mindstorms, and Duplo.  Lego at the Library has been a huge hit with the kids!
  • Offer the Babysitting Course several times a year
  • Provide shelving for the growing collection including the Backpacks designed to assist parents/caregivers in developing their children's literacy skills

How can you help?
