Update: 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.
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 intiative couldn't have happened without a great deal of community support and assistance.
We would like to thank the following groups and individuals for helping us launch this new initiative.
Becoming a Little Free Library Steward
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. Our aim is to spread the libraries throughout Strathmore, so if we have a number of applications for one area, we would then draw to choose a steward for that area.
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) and return it to the Strathmore Municipal Library.
