Welcome to the Dawson City Community Library

The Dawson City Community Library is a joint public and school library housed in the Robert Service School in Dawson City, Yukon. The library serves Dawson City and the surrounding area.  The Community Librarian operates the library with some assistance from volunteers.


The library's collection includes fiction, non-fiction, picture books, reference materials, audio cassettes, video tapes, magazines and newspapers and ebooks. The school and public libraries interfile their material on the shelf, but have separate catalogues and  circulation systems. To find public library material search  Online  Catalogue; For Robert Service School Library material search the Yukon Education Resource Services site.

The library offers a variety of programs and events for all ages. Check out the Events and News Page for what's on. All programs are free and open to the public on a drop-in basis.
