Grace Campbell served as public and regional librarian in Prince Albert from 1955 to 1973. Born in Scotland, Grace obtained her Library Science degree from McGill University and worked as a librarian in Prince Edward Island for many years. Encouraged by her friend Marion Gilroy, Grace migrated to Prince Albert in 1950.
During her tenure, Grace advanced the library’s presence in the community and oversaw the expansion of the regional library and the design of the John M. Cuelenaere Public Library. She retired to Victoria, BC in 1973, a few weeks before the grand opening of the Cuelenaere Library. The Library’s art gallery was named in her honour.
