MHPL Rates High on Tripadvisor

Posted on 24 October 2023 by Chris Brown.

Word is getting around on a popular travel website about the Medicine Hat Public Library.

MHPL is ranked as the fourth best library in Alberta on Tripadvisor.  The library has seven reviews on the site, all of which give it five stars.

The most recent review says “This place has it all. Micro fiche of the Medicine Hat News from inception forward, E books, movies, music, a very good children's theatre and numerous book sections.”

It goes on to say “You can read mags, papers and enjoy the sun while you knit, stitch or just take a break.”

Other reviews praise the library as state of the art, say there’s a great selection of books, CDs and reference material of all sorts, and note the view of the South Saskatchewan River adds to a calming, peaceful atmosphere.

The staff also stuck out to reviewers, who call them “wonderful,“ and “pleasant and helpful.”

The three libraries ahead of the Medicine Hat Public Library are Strathcona County Library in Sherwood Park, Stanley Milner Library in Edmonton and Cochrane Public Library in Cochrane.

Three other libraries in the Shortgrass Library System are in the top 20. Brooks Public Library is No. 13, Bassano Memorial Library is No. 17 and Graham Community Library in Ralston is No. 19.
