How to Access the Read Alberta and Prairie Indigenous Collections

In 2017, the BPAA partnered with the Alberta government to make Alberta-published eBooks available to readers across the province. In October 2022, the collection expanded to include digital editions of dozens of the province’s world-class magazines. The Read Alberta Collection is continually enriched as titles are added on a regular basis. We are grateful to Alberta Municipal Affairs’ Public Library Services Branch for this much-needed investment in our industry.

Launched in January 2019, a significant addition to the collection brings together over 200 titles from publishers in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. The first of its kind in Canada, the Prairie Indigenous eBook Collection increases access to stories by Indigenous authors and writings about Indigenous culture.
