Application Deadline: July 31, 2021 (Application below)
Little Free Library Installation Week: September 7-11, 2021. Stewards must be available this week to have their little free library's installed by our licensed installer.
Wheatland County Applicants: Please note that we do not have permission from Wheatland County to install Little Free Libraries next to Canada Post mailboxes on county roads. Little free library installation will be considered for county villages or private properties in high traffic areas.
Please note: Our aim is to spread the libraries throughout Strathmore and Wheatland County. If we have an existing library close to an applicant's address, we cannot guarantee the installation of a little free library at that applicant's address.
In 2015, the Strathmore Municipal Library received a grant from the United Way of Calgary and Area to build, purchase, and post Little Free Libraries throughout the Town of Strathmore. This initiative couldn't have happened without a great deal of community support and assistance.
In May 2018, the library received a Wheatland County Community Enhancement Grant to bring the Little Free Library program out into Wheatland County. The libraries are being painted and will be installed in the Spring of 2019. The library is currently accepting applications for Wheatland County Little Free Library Stewards.
We would like to thank the following groups and individuals for helping us launch this new initiative.
Each Little Free Library has a Steward who cares and watches over it. The Strathmore Municipal Library is currently looking for stewards who would be interested in caring for a library on either their private property or a public space.
All stewards will be required to sign a Stewardship Agreement for Little Free Library (below). Only those who become stewards will be required to sign this document. If you are interested in becoming a Little Free Library Steward, please fill out the Little Free Library Application (below).
