Radium Hot Springs Library was established on February 15, 1994, located at the Radium Elementary School. The Radium Library consisted of one wall of donated books from local residents. The Library quickly outgrew its space and on May 6, 1995 it relocated to the Radium Seniors’ Hall. It was housed in a small corner room upstairs and a small room in the basement .It was operated for limited hours by volunteers.
The Radium Library continued to grow and in 2006, it became British Columbia’s newest Public Library. At this time a Board of Directors was formed and a Librarian was hired on a part-time basis. Still it grew—and a dream came true. In June 22, 2008, the new library was officially opened. The new premises are 3 times the size of the old space, thanks to the generosity of the Village of Radium Hot Springs, Instautor Group, the B.C. Government and many volunteers.
There are now over 400 members. The collection grows monthly and includes the latest new releases in books and audios.. .
The Library converted to a comprehensive computer system in 2011 and have added a website site that includes e-books, Interlibrary loans, complete catalogue of available books, face book page as well as several data bases’
The Radium Library runs several programs a year, hosting authors as well as an annual book sale during the summer. The Edgewater School and the Library are continually working together on reading and art projects.
