Our Team

Staff Members

 Our staff is made up of two full time, employees who are energetic program coordinators and true book lovers.

Library Manager
Elysse Reicheneder is our Library Manager. She has a background in Public Relations and Event Planning which gave her a wealth of experience with marketing, promoting and event planning for non-profits. This experience was transferable into her role as Library Manager and has helped the library increase programming and participation.

Elysse loves the library and her favorite activity is reading so if you have any questions about books or are looking for suggestions she would love to help you out!

Patron Services Coordinator
Crystal Bell is our Patron Services Coordinator. If Crystal had her way she would be travelling with Reba McEntire as one of her back-up singers, but since she can't sing she went back to post secondary and is now our Patron Services Coordinator. 

Her love of books goes back to Elementary School when she volunteered in the school library at lunch.

Crystals degrees in psychology and history are transferable to creating unique and innovative programming for all ages. Crystal is looking to add diversity to the library programming so your opinions and suggestions are always welcome.

Board Members

The Irricana & Rural Municipal Library Board is made up of amazing volunteers who are dedicated to ensuring the advancement of the library. This board is energetic and enthusiastic about libraries and are responsible for getting our Library to be seen as essential service in the Irricana and Rural community. We are currently looking for new board members. If you are interested please contact Elysse at aimanager@marigold.ab.ca. 


The Irricana Library has a great volunteer base, some are weekly volunteers who are such a huge help in seeing that the library runs smoothly and efficiently and others are project specific volunteers who help with fundraising and seeing that programs are able to run. Any and all volunteers are so appreciated and the Library would not be a success without the help of all these wonderful volunteers who dedicate their time to ensure the library is a great place to visit.
