About Wapiti

Wapiti Regional Library serves an area of approximately 61,242 square kilometers in North Central Saskatchewan's beautiful Lake Country. Our communities include over 100 municipalities, ranging from rural municipalities, villages, towns to the cities of Humboldt, Melfort and Prince Albert, and First Nations communities, all with unique needs and strengths.

Wapiti Regional Library is Saskatchewan's original and most populated regional library system serving 123,000+ residents through 46 branch locations and boards. Created in 1950 as the North Central Saskatchewan Regional Library, Wapiti Regional Library was the first regional library in Saskatchewan. Wapiti acquired its current name in the mid-70s when the Saskatchewan Government, using Wapiti as a model, established a province-wide system of public libraries.

As a member of the Saskatchewan multi-type library system, Wapiti lends resources to other multi-type partners and receives free loans in return. As a result, patrons have access to over three million items from public, university and special libraries across Saskatchewan.

Quality service within existing funding is our priority. Wapiti Regional Library belongs to its member municipalities and those municipalities belong to their citizens, so Wapiti Regional Library is your library. Please visit your local public library...we are at your service!
