Our History

Frog Lake Public Library Board was officially established September 19, 2020. which includes 2 Frog Lake First Nation council members and 3 Frog Lake First Nation members dedicated to the establishment of the Frog Lake Public Library.

In early January 2020, Library Board chair - Maryjane Quinney convened with Greg Moran to deliberate on the concept of launching a pop-up library initiative for Frog Lake. The brainstorming sessions led to them to consider registering Frog Lake with Polaris, enabling us to monitor usage metrics. This prompted them to contemplate the formation of a governing board. Throughout the spring, informal dialogues regarding board establishment were initiated, disseminating information among agencies and community stakeholders. By June 24, 2020 a sample board of community representatives (BCR) was submitted to the council for official endorsement. Subsequently, on September 19, 2020, a working board was formally established to advance the library's development. Plans to integrate the library into a new building commenced on October 2, 2020. A developmental meeting with Elk Point Library board transpired on October 20, 2020, followed by an exploration of multi-use agreements on November 20, 2020. A formal system membership request was submitted on November 27, 2020. On December 1, 2020, the council sanctioned the board's formation and appointed its members. In February 2021, funding was secured through a grant from the Northern Lights Library system. Subsequently, in March, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Frog Lake Education was formalized and revised, ultimately being accepted as of May 23, 2021.
