Below are the current request for proposals available with the Chamber of Commerce:
T his Friday, February 9th the Medicine Hat Public Library is  asking for your support of their Lovin' the Library fundraiser.  You might ask why the Library needs to hold a fundraiser - they are, after all, funded by the City of Medicine Hat and the Government of Alberta. Here's why: they want to reach more people. They want to do more for our community, our friends, our families.  The Library has yet to meet their fundraising goal for their recently completed theatre renovation. This renovation, which began last February, made the Library's public theatre accessible to all with the addition of accessible seating options and auditory aids for the hearing impaired. When the fundraising for this project is complete, the Library Board will set their sights on expanding services and reaching more of the community by adding a satellite location in another area of the city. This doesn't necessarily mean building another brick & mortar location, but perhaps, partnering with a business or organization to further their reach.

As you can see, the Library has visions of growth for the future that only you can help achieve. Your Lovin' the Library ticket purchase will help meet these goals and in return, you'll be treated to a fun and unique evening in the elegantly transformed library complete with hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar stocked with Hell's Basement brews and Co-op Gold wines, and fun activities like an adult storytime, scavenger hunt, mystery wine game, a variety show featuring short performances by local acts, and a live and silent auction.

Tickets are $65/person or $450/group of 8; available on or at the Library.  Thank you for supporting your library.

In December 2016, the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) ruled that access to broadband internet is a basic telecommunications service. The decision set new targets for broadband internet access services including 90 per cent of Canadian homes and businesses having access to fixed broadband services by 2021, with download speeds of at least 50 megabits per second (Mbps) and upload speeds of at least 10 Mbps. Service levels and quality of broadband service range throughout the province, therefore, following the CRTC decision, the Government of Alberta decided to work towards a future where every Albertan has access to a good quality internet connection.
