About us...

The Pas Regional Library is non-profit and funded by the Town of The Pas, the RM of Kelsey, the Province of Manitoba, & the Department of Culture and Heritage.

Revenue generated by book sales, overdue fines, photo copy / fax charges and Annex Rental is directly applied to the Library operating costs.


We are fortunate to have such a unique and progressive library in our community. The building our library is located in was originally a power plant – see our library history for fascinating details!


Residents, non-residents and visitors are invited to visit our library and explore our resources.

Our well trained staff will be happy to answer questions, help you find what you are looking for and offer any assistance you may require.


The Pas Regional Library is governed by a Volunteer Board, appointed by the Town of The Pas and the RM of Kelsey. Board Meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month.
