J.W. Inglis Library Learning Commons

A Place of Literacy and Innovation

We believe that children have a universal right to access information and ideas. Since opening our doors, we have delivered on this belief by sharing our extensive collection and providing library services to the community. We look forward to welcoming our students back this year.

About Us

Small Community, Big Heart

J.W. Inglis Library Learning Commons offers the Lumby community extensive materials and a comfortable environment. As a part of J.W. Inglis Elementary School, we’re proud to be a positive resource for our patrons.

Our Library Learning Commons has transformed into a community hub that contributes much more than just books. We provide access to ideas, information, technology and experiences that support and enrich lives for students of all ages, abilities, and means. Keep browsing through our site to learn more.
