Library

Brief his­to­ry of the library

The Jasper Munic­i­pal Library occu­pies a build­ing, which was con­struct­ed in 1926 as the Jasper Sub/District Head­quar­ters of the Roy­al Cana­di­an Mount­ed Police. The library locat­ed to this build­ing in 1975 when the RCMP moved to a new larg­er and more mod­ern build­ing. The library has done exten­sive ren­o­va­tion to the inte­ri­or of the build­ing, but has tried to main­tain the charm and quaint­ness of the orig­i­nal build­ing.

Travelers need to know three

RV series three

Maps. Locations, Attractions...

We found that maps were one of the greatest help and I don't mean online maps nor GPS for that matter. Physical, printed out hard copies, the ones you can buy at some petro stations and books stores. And you can get free ones at the information kiosk. This download link has an old map that is still some what valid, just the dates are old. Jasper National Park Map

Free maps are great from the tourist outlets

A back country map book is very handy specially when in British Columbia (BC) with a RV. It maps out all the recreational sites where you can plan your next sleep and for FREE! Don't everyone like things for free?

Points of interest is good to know before you arrive at your destination, it might just be along the route you take to arrive in Jasper. Take your time and enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds us locals everyday.

My suggestion is to explore this site for all the attractions and points of interest. Use the search tool to navigate this photo rich site, the menus or tags works just as well, if you cannot find what you are looking for, don't hesitate to send us a comment.
