The new Slave Lake public library, which opened in 2010, was one of hundreds of buildings destroyed in the terrible northern Alberta forest fire.
If you’re interested in helping out but aren’t sure how, the Peace Library System is taking donations of new or nearly new books (no more than two years old). Books can be shipped prepaid to:
Peace Library System
8301 — 110 Street
Grande Prairie, AB T8W 6T2
ATTN: Books for Slave Lake Library
The books will be catalogued and stored until a temporary library opens. Cash donations can also be made through the library’s website.
