Our Mission

The Fort St. John Public Library is a community cornerstone, providing a variety of information and support for lifelong learning in a welcoming, entertaining and safe environment. The library hosts creative, community-oriented programs and provides friendly information services.


The FSJPL is a Library Association and is governed by Part 4 of the Library Act. Library Associations receive no direct tax support and operate on grants and fundraising.

The FSJPL charges fees for photocopying, printing, faxing, and laminating.  As a non-profit organization, these fees are charged to help defray the cost of supplying these services to the community of Fort St John and Areas B and C of the Peace River Regional District.
