Priddis Library: The Priddis Library, located in the old schoolhouse, is open Tuesday and Fridays from 3:00-5:00, and the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month from 10:00am to noon. We are part of the Marigold Library System. Incoming books are quarantined for 72 hrs. Social distancing is being practiced between visitors. Your donations are greatly appreciated but we will not accept encyclopedias, textbooks, cookbooks, Reader’s Digest condensed books, or any books more than 20 years old. Many volunteers helped at the library over the years. Gerri has retired and we thank her for her time. She will be missed. Those continuing to run the library are Arlene, Carole, Sonya, and Barb. Thanks for volunteering your time to keep the library operational for the community.

2021 Board of Directors: If you would like to get involved in our community, we still have a few board positions open for 2021: Treasurer and Communications Directors. If you can make a commitment of a few hours every month, please email email@example.com. Make a difference in your community!
Priddis Rink: The Priddis Panthers volunteers had hoped to keep the ice rink open longer, but with the warmer weather in early March, it closed early. Next year we will try to have a thicker base to get those extra bonus weeks in March. Our association was able to refund 65% of the fees to our members. Thanks to all our hockey parent volunteers for their time.

Priddis Panther’s Hockey Association Recycling Bins: Note: It is recommended that boxes with donations be sealed and smaller bags be used so they fit easily into the roller chutes.
The bottle recycling bins are located at the west end of the Priddis Community Hall parking lot by the rink. The bottle recycling program is a fundraiser for the Priddis Panthers Hockey Association. Thank you to everyone supporting this program with your beverage container recyclable donations for youth in our community. Please, only deposit containers indicated on the bottoms of the bins.
