COVID-19 Update

On April 6, 2021, the government announced that libraries must temporarily close their doors.  Libraries are listed under the "Entertainment & Recreation Facilities" section of the Stronger Public Health Measures page.  So our doors our currently closed, but our service remains open during our hours of operation, including home deliveries (in-town only) and curbside pick-up.

You can renew or register for a library card online by filling out our webform. Your library card gives you access to digital resources including eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines and database learning.

Virtual programming will continue until restrictions on social gathering are eased.

Contact us online, use our CHAT service or call 780.514.2722 for more information, or follow us on Facebook, InstagramTwitter and YouTube.


The Management and Board of Drayton Valley Library

For those seeking local health information, visit our COVID-19 Community Support page.

*We suspect that when we reopen, we will abide by the following guidelines which we used during our last reopening:

The province has ordered that public libraries restrict public access to 15% of fire capacity; the fire capacity for Drayton Valley Municipal Library is 55 so we have a public access restriction of 8 people in our facility at a time.

As a result of this limit, we are compelled to restrict access to “purposeful activity” only:

  • borrowing/ returning items,
  • browsing collections
  • reader’s advisory or reference services
  • accessing print, copy and fax services
  • public computer access (contact us to book a computer)
  • exam invigilation services
  • quiet study or use of Wi-Fi

We are also compelled to restrict the above activities to a maximum of one-hour per day. Lounge spaces are closed to the public. Loitering will not be permitted to ensure that other patrons are able to access library services.
