All ORL Branches are closed on statutory holidays.
The book return bins will be closed over the Victoria Day Long Weekend each year as the town of Falkland celebrates our Annual Stampede. Your patience and understanding is appreciated.
The Falkland Branch is located on Highway 97 in the Falkland townsite near the Post Office and the Stampede Grounds. We share our building with Red Shed Farm Designs and Gifts. When the library is closed there is a book drop bin located near the accessibility ramp.

The Internet/Catalogue computers are available for use during open hours. When the library is busy, please keep your computer use to 15 minutes if possible; your understanding is appreciated.
