New Library Card Sponsor: Medicine Hat Sunrise Rotary Club

Posted on 04 March 2024 by Chris Brown.

Medicine Hat Sunrise Rotary Club has been shining in our community for more than 25 years. We think one of the places the club shines brightest is on Medicine Hat Public Library, and club members have plenty of good things to say about MHPL.

“Our favourite thing about the library is that it provides so many opportunities for people,” says club member and library page Keith Walker. “The club likes that the library provides resources, programs, and is a welcome place for everyone in the community.”

Walker adds the library is a place of equity and inclusion, both of which are important to club members.

Sunrise Rotary Club is the current sponsor of our #MHPLforYXH campaign. The club’s $1,000 donation that makes cards FREE for 200 adults in Medicine Hat (children’s cards are always free).

The club has sponsored the program, also known as A Library Card for Every Hatter, before. As well, the club has supported the Sunrise Rotary Ride the Road to Reading program for more than a decade by providing funds for prizes and to help with the costs of sending library ambassadors to the schools. The program will pedal into another year this month.

Visit the library to get your FREE card or renew it online. To learn more about the program and the different ways you can be a sponsor visit our A Library Card for Every Hatter page.
