Founded in 1972

Before the age of personal computers reading was a favorite pasttime.  The need for more books grew as the mining community developed.  Each street had a "Story Lady" that read books to the children and the Book Mobile was no longer sufficient to feed the needs of the community.  A commitee was formed and a plan was put ahead to give the people of Leaf Rapids a permanent library.

 
Hence the Leaf Rapids Library was formed.  The public and school libraries worked together jointly to provide the services needed. With a permanent address and support through grants the library was ready to be filled with books.  Materials were donated from the townspeople and other libraries.  Today the Leaf Rapids Public Library still prides itself on keeping our patrons up to date on all the new titles, ever increasing our supply of knowledge.
