A growing community awaits funding for a new, larger library.

Many patrons rely on the SNPL to provide wifi and computer access.

First Nation libraries do not receive the same federal funding as other public libraries.

SNPL serves about 87 patrons with an additional 30 patrons per day who are under served due to lack of space, computers, or accessibility issues.
