The Swift Current Branch Library is under new management. Read all about it.

Connor Kurtz is the man heading up the role now after he accepted it earlier this month.

Kurtz, who is originally from Medicine Hat, is excited to come work in the library and instigate positivity on the job.

"One of the things I've found about libraries, through my education in them in the cultural sectors, is that they really help to break down barriers and connect people in our communities with the wider world and give us tools to help see things from different perspectives," offered Kurtz.

Kurtz is already impressed by the team at the library and is looking forward to working with them.

"I'm looking forward, in the coming days and weeks, to working with them and getting to know what the community is looking for from its library and how we can support our patrons and the community of Swift Current," praised Kurtz.
