History of the Library

The Hines Creek Library started as a small community supported library in the late 1970's.  The library was run by board members volunteering their time and most of the books were donated by the community.  The library was located in a small corner of the then existing AGT building.  As the library expanded it was then moved to a space in the car wash/ bottle depot.  

The Village of Hines Creek passed a by-law to establish a library board in 1983 and in 1991 the library was moved into the newly constructed Village Office building.  In late 2004 the library moved upstairs to a larger area in the Village Complex with the understanding that a grant would be available for a lift, which would make the library wheelchair accessible.  When the grant was not forthcoming the board decided to move back downstairs in February of 2009 and has been in this location since.  

In 1986 the library joined Peace Library System and has continues to grow.  We are part of a system that sends books province wide and allows us to bring in requested books.  

Our collection of over 10,000 books continues to increase.  Including the latest best sellers, DVD's, CD, and large print.
