Whitewater Region Public Library

Effective Monday, January 3, 2022 the Whitewater Region Public Library is returning to curbside service only.  Our branch hours will remain the same.

Patrons are asked to visit our online catalogue to see what is available.

Please remember to call or email ahead when requesting books to allow ample time for your collection to be prepared.  You will be notified when your books are ready for pickup.

The Whitewater Region Public Library offers patrons lending material (books, DVDs, magazines, museum passes), inter-library loans, printing, scanning, photocopying and many more services at each of its three Branches - Beachburg, Cobden and Foresters Falls.

Whitewater Region Public Library Board is made up of a group of volunteers from the Whitewater Region who are interested in keeping the Library a viable part of the community.  The Board meets 7 time a year at the Cobden Branch of the Library.  The meetings begin at 6:30 pm and are open to the public.

If you are interested in joining the Board please contact the CEO- Debbi McLaughlin at whitewaterpl@nrtco.net.
