Regina Public Library

Regina Public Library is an urban library system committed to providing community services, spaces, and technologies to inspire discovery, learning, and connection. We are an essential gateway for all people to advance themselves through literacy, lifelong learning, social engagement, and cultural enrichment.

We build relationships with other like-minded organizations and work with them to positively impact the community. Through provision of our numerous resources, we promote social vitality and economic prosperity for the people of Regina. We support, defend, and promote the universal principles of intellectual freedom and privacy.

With eight branch locations throughout the city and a Central Library downtown, we offer positive, dynamic, and inclusive spaces where people can discover, learn, and connect.

In addition to a collection of books, films, and music in traditional and digital media, our customers have access to hundreds of programs, art exhibitions, film screenings and cultural events each year.

Library resources are available to all residents of Regina, including materials from over 300 public library branches in the province, through the Saskatchewan Information and Library Services (SILS) Consortium.

Thousands of Reginans visit public library branches each year and many more access our online offerings. The people of Regina understand the value of the public library and its commitment to a democratic and universal space that welcomes diversity and encourages sharing of knowledge and information.
