About Us

Windthorst Library has been a part of the community of Windthorst since 1966. At that time the library was a small collection of donated books kept at the telephone office. In 1969 the library joined the Southeast Regional Library and moved to a newly built facility made ready for the Library and Village Office

The Library currently has 6 board members and is always looking for new interested community members to join. Shirley Gentes is the contact if you are interested in joining us. New board members are always welcome.

The Library Board plans activities for the community such as:

  • Holiday Kids’ Crafts
  • Ongoing Kids’ Coloring Contests
  • Monthly Library Raffle Draw for books and prizes
  • Photography contests, Lego contests and others throughout the year
  • Summer Reading Program and Saskatchewan Library Week activites
  • Writing Workshops for Teens and Mobile Playground in the summer
  • Adult programming such as knitting, jewellery making

In the past we have offered preschool story hours, bookclubs, artist and author visits, quilting and sewing workshops. If there is a program you would be interested in, let us know!
