The Edson & District Public Library is undergoing a renovation! The new renovation will make the library an accessible and inclusive facility, add community requested spaces, extend capacity, make it energy efficient, include a welcoming engaging design and address safety issues and facility maintenance.

We'll update plans here as the process moves forward.

On June 29, 2023, Council approved an increase in the Capital Budget for the Library Renovation and Expansion project from $3,000,000 to $3,700,000 with increased town funding of $616,600 to be funded from the Future Civic/Cultural Facility Reserve.

The project funding breakdown is expected to be as follows:

  • Town of Edson - $2,078,600
  • Yellowhead County - $538,000
  • Province - $1,000,000 (CFEP program grant)
  • Library Board - $83,400 (reserves)
