Admir Omercic: December User of the Month

Admir Omercic
Johnson Controls - Maintenance

I have always appreciated libraries.  Throughout my entire schooling the library was the best place for study and relaxation. 

Whether I was in the library of my home country Bosnia, later the library in Germany, or right here in Medicine Hat, I always felt that the library is my home away from home.

Medicine Hat library is the place where I find the ideas and solutions for my countless projects and activities, where I plan my travels through travel books, or just relax while reading some magazines.

And the best part is all of it is free with excellent library staff always ready to help out.

Taj. P. Singh Bajwa: November User of the Month

Taj. P. Singh Bajwa
2nd Year Power Engineering Technology

“Stepping foot in the library every day is a wise use of time for me. I glance through different books … a lot of pages. All have a special odour of knowledge and emotions; calmly resting between the covers for ages. It is a great place to study and explore.”
