Library History


The Library officially opens upstairs in the Fire Hall. Its collection consists of several hundred volumes which the Taber Home and School Association collected through acquiring cash and book donations


 The Taber Library Association was formed.


The Library was moved to the ground floor of the Fire Hall.


The Library's collection consists of over 3,000 volumes. 


Property is purchased for a new library site.


Construction of the new library building takes place. On March 21, the Library's cornerstone is chosen, which will read, "No possession can surpass or equal a good library. --J. A. Langford". The Sorority Club conducts story hours on Saturday mornings. Reverends Bade and Kennedy present books to the Library on behalf of the Taber Ministerial Association.


Kiwanis donates $3,230 to the Library Building Fund and collects books and money for the new Library. Other donations to the Library include pictures of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip by the Archie McLean Chapter I.O.D.E., a clock in memory of Cecil Johnson by the Taber Lions Club, and books from the late Senator Buchanan by the Lethbridge Herald. On June 28, Wesley G. Smith lays the cornerstone and Mayor Stuart Boyle cuts the ribbon to commemorate the official opening of the new Library facility. Members of Kiwanis help move books into the Library and the Ladies of Kiwanis donate $400 towards the purchase of books for teenagers. I.O.D.E. also donates a book cart.
