History of the Kenaston Library

The Kenaston branch of the Wheatland Regional library opened on March 5, 1970 in the health center building on the top of the hill on main street where it is currently located.

It was financed and stocked by an agreement with the regional library, villages of Kenaston and Bladworth, and the RM of McCraney. The first local board under the chairmanship of Barbara Pavelich included John Randall, Stan Ouellette, Tony Zdunich, and H. Mutch.

The first librarian was Doreen Kerpan with assistants Lucy Mohagen, Grace Tracy and Faye McVeigh. Marian Chugg and Ina Mae Collins followed Doreen with Faye McVeigh assisting both and is currently our branch Librarian and assisted by Vicki Fowler and Colleen Sekulich.

Over the years the Kenaston library has become a hub of the community providing books for all ages, large prints, books on tape, movies, thematic displays, Summer reading programs, contests and magazines as well as public computer for everyone to use. It's an educational source for the Kenaston school and the new Distant Learning Center as well as the Clearspring hutterite colony school.

It also provides mobile reading sources such as "Library 2 Go " for both adults and children as well as many E-Resources used by many such as Business & Careers, Consumer Reports, Do it Yourself reports, Press Display for free newspapers, Encyclopedia's and Reference, e-books and e- audiobooks, French, Genealogy, Health and Wellness, Kids, Law and legislation, and maps and travel.

The library also contains a "Used book sale room" and each year sells the community "Birthday Calendar".

Its current board members include Colleen Sekulich, Florence Greke, Faye McVeigh, Crystal Zdunich, Marylou Whittles, Agatha Rupcich, Elizabeth Zdunich, Carman Fowler, Sarah Martin, and Vicki Fowler. This board works together to provide new ideas and funding to enable our library to remain open and active in the community.
