The unique collection is designed to expose library users to works created in Lethbridge and surrounding areas in Southern Alberta.

“We’re starting off with just adult collections, so all the materials being submitted right now have to be geared towards an adult audience,” Lethbridge Public Library information services managers Madeline Gormley said.

“We’re hoping to expand it to children’s materials, and maybe even music in the future. We’re really hoping that this gets us started and we can expand the types of things we’re taking in.”
