The Friends of the Library
This volunteer group helps to support the library and its services. Members organize events like book sales to raise money for the library. In addition to books they have various articles for sale. They also bring books and other borrowed materials to people in the community who may have difficulty visiting the library building.

The Barrier-Free Committee
The committee's aim is to make four of Atikokan's public buildings more accessible for persons with disabilities. The library has been their first project. Renovations were made. An elevator was installed, a new washroom was added, and automatic doors were put in. The committee has benefited from numerous generous donations. An official Barrier-Free opening was held in October of 2006.

CAP
The Community Access Program (CAP) is a Government of Canada initiative, administered by Industry Canada, that aims to provide Canadians with affordable public access to the Internet and the skills they need to use it effectively. Funding from CAP has allowed the library to obtain computers for public use. Our Cool Cap Cove offers free Internet access to library members. Courses in Internet use will soon be offered in our new community training room. These classes are sponsored by CAP and will be conducted by our CAP student employee. For further information see the CAP web site.
