Library Service Update

The library is currently closed to the public, but our staff are still available to help! We're here to assist you Monday – Friday 10 AM – 6 PM, and Saturday 11 AM – 5 PM.

We have a variety of Curbside Services available including printing, faxing, and scanning, and you can still borrow items with Curbside Pickup. Call 403-845-2042 to schedule an appointment. Access our digital resources with your library card by visiting our eLibrary. Don't have a library card? Register online!

In-person programs are suspended, but we have online programs and take home craft kits available. See the Events page for more details.

Please note that returned items are held in quarantine for 3 days before staff check them in. They will continue to appear on your library card during this time, but no late fees will accrue.

Showcase Cinema


-- The Rocky Mountain House Public Library's Showcase Cinema programme is currently on hiatus until TIFF can resume support of the programme. --

Showcase Cinema is a member of Film Circuit, the Toronto International Film Festival's national film outreach programme, engaging domestic grassroots networks and strong community partnerships to bring the best of Canadian and world cinema to communities across the country.

We've screened Canadian films such as Brooklyn, Mean Dreams, The Steps, and Maudie. As well, Showcase Cinema has screened a diverse mix of engaging international films, including Moonlight, The Dressmaker, The Glass Castle, and Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool. Showcase Cinema provides film-goers an opportunity to see films that may not otherwise be available in Rocky Mountain House.

Join us at Rocky Cinemas on the second Wednesday of the month at 5:00 PM or 7:00 PM from September to April to watch some of the best independent films. 

Worried that you won’t be able to attend every film?
If you are a season pass holder and cannot attend a particular screening, you are welcome to transfer your pass to another person to use for the evening.

If you would like to help select the films we bring in for Showcase Cinema please e-mail armh@prl.ab.ca to request to be added to the selection committee.

Film selection packages are distributed twice a year, (late Summer for the four September - December films, and again at the end of the year for the four January - April films). Committee members can review the list of available films and cast their votes for which ones they would like to see.
