Unite for Literacy (website)
This is a very cool site. You can choose different languages to have the story read to you. For example: you can read the book in English and see the english words, but have it read to you in Spanish. If you are unsure or need help...stop by the library and we can help you out.

In order for the library to meet the needs of all patrons in a satisfying and useful manner, the following rules must be followed:
- All materials taken out of the library must be signed out and patrons are responsible for items borrowed
- Certain materials such as encyclopedias, atlases, dictionaries, reference material, etc. are for in-library use only. If, for a special reason, a patron needs to borrow said materials, permission of the library technician is required
- All books in the general fiction and non-fiction areas have a two-week borrowing period and must be renewed to extend that borrowing period
- Students are expected to use the library for purposes of research, book exchange, or study. Visiting or socializing are not permitted in the library

Andrew Municipal Public Library
The Andrew Municipal Public Library was established in 1950 and is located in the Andrew Village Complex, 5021 - 50 Street. Andrew Public Library is a Community Access Centre and provides free Internet access. Members of the public have access to three designated Public Library computers. There is no charge to access the computers, but there is a charge for printing and photocopying. Time limits may be set for computer use depending on demand.
The Andrew Public Library computers have their own log-in separate from Andrew School computers. Public patrons must sign in when using these computers. School library computers may be used during Public Library hours, but only by Andrew School students and staff as they have their own individual log-in.

Family - $10.00
Adult / Student - $5.00
- All new memberships and renewals must provide a mailing address, a phone number, and designate whether they are a village resident or non-resident.
- Memberships may be revoked for clients who damage materials, owe fines, and consistently have overdue items. Restitution must be made to gain back library privileges.
