About the Aberdeen Tiny Library: 

The Aberdeen Tiny Library, the first library to be added in Kamloops since 1974, is a temporary 352 square foot space that opened its doors in November 2023. Conveniently nestled adjacent to the Aberdeen Mall Food Court, the cozy space invites visitors to browse and borrow from a range of new, popular, and bestselling materials for all ages. 

The Aberdeen Tiny Library is open Wednesday to Saturday from 12:00 to 4:00 pm, and is equipped with self-serve hold pickup lockers, featuring radio frequency ID technology that allows patrons to pick up their holds any time the mall is open. 

The TNRL has a lease agreement in place for one year at this Aberdeen Mall location, with an option for renewal. While celebrating this accomplishment, TNRL remains committed to exploring opportunities for a full-service library in southwest Kamloops.
