You do not need a membership to attend but if you want to take out library materials you will need one.   We would like to thank all the volunteers that came forward to do Story hour, without your help it would not be possible.

Irrigation Info

The irrigation has been turned off for the season and our Town crew has begun the process of blowing out the Town’s lines to protect them against frost and associated damage. Please be advised that Town employees may be entering yards in order to do so, this process could take several weeks. The Town is only responsible for main lines, if you have underground sprinkler systems we suggest hiring a private company to be sure lines are adequately blown out. If you have any further questions, please contact the Town office at 403-758-3212.

No Evacuation for the Town of Magrath

The Town of Magrath would like to address rumors about evacuation for the Town of Magrath.  Our current status on the Kenow wildfire is safe.  There is no evacuation for the Town of Magrath or in the immediate surrounding areas of Cardston County. If there is ever a threat to our safety we do have procedures in place to notify our residents as quickly as possible. Our information is the most up to date and accurate, as we speak directly to our Fire Chief. 

Also, please read the information carefully on other sites.  Yes there are evacuations in Cardston County and yes we are considered in Cardston County, but there is accurate location information in the evacuation details.
