Our mission at Vermilion Public Library is to provide and promote library and
information resources in a public space, welcoming and accessible to all.
About UsVermilion Public Library is a member of the Northern Lights Library System (NLLS). NLLS is one part of seven regional library systems across Alberta, helping deliver library services to all Albertans, regardless of where they live.
The Vermilion Public Library was established by the Frog Lake Chapter of IODE in 1931 with 113 books. In 1932 they officially founded the Vermilion Public Library and years later turned the library over to the town. From those modest beginnings to now, the IODE continues to support our Library.
The Vermilion Public Library is an integral part of the Town of Vermilion, serving as a primary source of educational, cultural and informational needs. From the public access computers to our collection of books, movies and audio-books, Vermilion Residents can be proud of their library.
