ACME MUNICIPAL LIBRARY UPDATE:
For many years the Acme Municipal Library has offered a variety of services to the community.
Books still constitute the main part of the library collection. Special sections and types of reading material include DVDs, large print books, magazines, westerns, science fiction, biographies, non-fiction and fiction books, as well as books for younger readers. The Acme Municipal Library also has WiFi and computers available for free access to the Internet (computers are not available at this time due to COVID regulations).
Acme Municipal Library is part of the Marigold Library System, which is partnered with Northern Lights Library System, Peace Library System & Yellowhead Library System. These 4 groups form the TRACpac System, which allows us to share all of our collections across the province! See what we have to offer here http://catalogue.tracpac.ab.ca/polaris/
