It was nice to be able to access a full sized computer within the town. There is a great selection of books and programmes along with friendly service. Not only is it a beautiful, historical building, it feels quite spacious and bright inside.

The historic Fernie Library is a joy to visit. The tall windows frame the mountain view while you sit and read on the couch with your child. Excellent free childrens programming, always something new happening for them. If you get the chance go to the Gala fundraising event where you can dine in style inside the library!

The library is just off the downtown 2nd Ave and easy to find. It's not huge, but has enough for a town this size. It's also a historic building once being the town police station. It's architecturally pretty interesting if you're into that sort of thing.

Amazing and warm place in Fernie to visit, if you need abit of peace and quiet Fernie library is by far the best place to get it. When the downhill ski or mountain biking gets to much walk into the library and wind down. The staff members always have great smiles and are always happy to help you, love being... More

This library shows everything that is good about small town libraries. Great community atmosphere. Lots of activities, and a very carefully and well chosen collection. A real pleasure.
