Out Reach Services

Outreach Services

The Library offers several Outreach Services for all ages in all areas of our community. The can include:

  • Story Telling in a classroom or at special event:  Our storytime dogs accompany a library staff member and regularly visit classrooms when requested by teachers.  We are often found at community events such as Westlock's Christmas Light Up.
  • Special Services-Daisy Readers: library patrons who have difficultly using regular/large print books can speak to us regarding the borrowing of a Daisy Reader, which allows the playing of audio books
  • Home Bound Patrons: patrons who have difficulty coming to the library may request home services.  This allows them to have library materials dropped off and picked up.  This service is available just seasonally if required.
  • Outreach Library: the Library has an Outreach Library at Smithfield Lodge that is maned by one of our long time volunteers.  This library is open Wednesday from 3 - 4 p.m. on the second floor at Smithfield Lodge.  Patrons borrowing from this rotating selection of reading materials must have a valid library card (available from the volunteer for $7.50)
  • Outreach MakerSpace:  Library staff is available to bring one of their MakerSpace Programs in your classroom or facility.
  • Public Speaking: Westlock Libraries would be pleased to visit your group and speak on any issue regarding library-led community initiatives, library services or ways your group/organization could become more involved with your community library.  If you have a specific topic in mind please feel free to contact us.
