Alberta's Regional Library Systems

Alberta's regional library systems were created to secure efficient, economical, and expert library service for local municipal libraries. They include the Peace, Northern Lights, Marigold, Chinook Arch, and Shortgrass Library Systems, and Yellowhead and Parkland Regional Libraries. Regional library systems enhance local library service in areas of automation, technical support, acquiring and sharing library resources, offering on-site consulting to member libraries by professional librarians, and training. Regional library systems help provide access to the information all citizens need in their business and home life.


The Alberta Teachers of English as a Second Language (ATESL) is a professional organization that promotes the highest standards of teaching and English language program provision for all learners in Alberta whose first language is other than English. It also provides many special professional development opportunities to its members and non-members with ESL interests including monthly workshops, an annual conference, and an online resource library. ATESL collaborates and communicates with various local, provincial and national bodies to provide support to English language professionals and learners.
