Teens (ages 13 – 19) have their own dedicated area at the Medicine Hat Public Library. “Youthopia” is made by teens, for teens. We have thousands of Young Adult resources – books, movies, TV shows, music, magazines, video games, etc. – that you can access from home or at the Library with your free card. If you haven’t visited in a while, make a point to stop by and rediscover your library.
In light of the most recent Alberta Government's COVID-19 restrictions and declaration of a Public Health Emergency (November 24th), we have decided to cancel all in-person programming for the interim future. Please call or email for more information.
