Shortgrass Library System

Shortgrass Library System is a partnership of southeastern Alberta libraries and has its headquarters in Medicine Hat. They work under the mission, “Shortgrass Library System provides quality library support services to member municipalities and partners.”

In March 1988, the Province announced Shortgrass Library System as the fifth regional library system established in Alberta. It is a service-oriented, non-profit organization and is registered as a charitable organization. Embodying the vision, “Resourceful by nature,” this system provides library support services to fourteen public libraries in southeast Alberta.
