From the effort of the first librarian who ensured immigrants could access books in their own languages, to the present day as an active community hub, the library has been responsible for many ground-breaking Canadian firsts.

The Regina Public Library implemented the country’s first fully automated library system, established the first writer-in-residence program, pioneered English as a Second Language classes, hosted Indigenous storytelling circles, and was instrumental in developing a single on-card system for all of Saskatchewan

With contributions from community members, Biblio Files a history of the Regina Public Library covers the library’s entire history and demonstrates why it is such a beloved and necessary institution.
