  • A bit quieter now. Clean and good surroundings. Nothing else noteworthy. Staff courteous. There is certainly something missing in the library, can you figure it out?  more »

  • Beautiful, modern library with lots of ammenities and close to a lot of new shops that are opening soon. Staff is super friendly and there is always lots to do and see here.
  • I might be a bit biased with this review, because quite frankly, I love this library. Beautiful, spacious, bright, and inviting. This is the first impression you will have as you walk through the entrance. Study areas, quiet rooms, an elaborate book and video catalogue with an amazing selection, a wonderful children's area for both big and small, and I won't forget to mention the fantastic programs they offer year-round. There is even a cafe with drinks and treats with a seating area too. A year or two ago, they decided to waive library membership fees, so all this is free to you and your family! The library is set in the Strathcona County Hall building, so not only are there often community events to be found there often on weekends, but you will appreciate the 2-hour free parking in the heated underground parkade. Lots of parking available (did you know that on weekends you are able to use the second level of parking in the parkade normally reserved for County staff?)! Any downside? If there was anything I would change, I would move the upstairs study area further back in the library. Although it is in a pretty setting, so close to the large skylight above, this same area is straight above the cafe and so the chattering of cafe patrons travels right up to this 'quiet area'. Bring earbuds, and don't expect to have peace and quiet in that spot. That being said, Strathcona County is so very lucky to have such a beautiful public facility.
  • It would be really great if there was a designated silent/quiet study space at this library. Every time I’ve been here there has been people in the study space having loud conversations which makes it hard to concentrate
  • Absolutely love this library! The staff are super friendly to us, very helpful and had great recommendations for kids. I think we sometimes forget how expensive books can be - one book a week for a year adds up! Our library cards are free, we always leave with great books in our hands and it's a wonderful place for kids to be and learn. Highly recommend this library!
  • This is another place for which I've not written a review despite repeated visits. Makes my head reel; how's such a lack possible? Sorry Strathcona Library; I'll remedy that right now. You're well-stocked, with most every subject covered (at least in our searches). What was already checked out was returned reasonably quickly, and the inter-library loan process filled in the gaps. This location is a clean and well-lighted place, full of helpful staff, comfortable places to sit and read, and -- best of all IMHO -- near to Whyte Avenue and all its walkabout fun. It's double fun on Saturdays, when one can do the library and the Strathcona Farmers' Market with only a few steps in-between.
