History

In May 2011, the Rotary Club of Slave Lake Public Library was destroyed by the fires that devastated the Town of Slave Lake and the surrounding area, including its’ small, newly established archives. In June 2013, the Library moved back to its original location after being in a temporary location since the 2011 fires. Shortly after relocating, the Library received a donation of $10,000 by the Slave Lake Fire Book Committee to start a new Archives, Rare books & Special Collections.
In light of the Slave Lake Fires of 2011 and in honour of the Slave Lake Fire Committees’ generous donation, the Archives seeks to acquire, preserve and make available records of historical value to the Town of Slave Lake and the surrounding area, as well as promote the appreciation and study of the Lesser Slave Lake region.
The Archives provide a safe and secure location to house the historical records of Slave Lake and the Lesser Slave Lake region. The Archives also provide a welcoming environment for the general public and encourages access and use of its records. The Archives is open to all members of the public during operating hours or by appointment.
