Story time with Colter

Each week, the library posts two “Story time with Colter” segments! You will find these videos on our YouTube channel, our website, and our Facebook page. We take the time to choose books we hope everyone in your family will enjoy! Look for a new story with Colter Tuesdays and Thursdays. Have a book suggestion… let us know!

Large Print Books available

The Library has a great selection of large print books. Large print books are books written by popular authors with lettering that’s significantly larger than the average book font which make them easier to read for individuals with compromised vision. The Library has two Large Print collections. We have a Large Print rotation from Manitoba Public Library Services which changes every 4 months. To view our Library’s collections check our catalogue and do a keyword search using “large print”. When your search results come up, go to the right hand side and click “show all” to see the complete catalogue listings.
