In September 23, 1929, a re-organization took place and the Kispiox Valley Farmers’ Institute was granted a new charter. As of 1929, under the Societies Act, the objectives of the Institute are:

History / Biographical
Prior to the construction of a library building in Smithers, locals were able to borrow reading material from several small reading rooms. One such room was run by the Presbyterian Church out of the second floor of Mason Adams Drug Store. Another was located in Kennedy’s Billiards Room on Main Street, and yet another operated out of the Interior News building. In these early years, Mrs. Kathleen Casler was chairman of the Smithers Public Library Board and was an advocate for finding a permanent home for the small collection of books in the library’s possession. By 1954, Casler had persuaded Smithers Town Council to convert an unused room in the municipal hall on Fourth Avenue into a library. The space was small, unheated, and lacked appropriate shelving, but it generated much excitement in the community. Ruth Mould worked in the library as an unpaid volunteer under librarian Marge Beley. By 1961, Mould was the head librarian and the library was serving 2,700 people. In 1967, the Smithers Centennial Library was built on Alfred Avenue with a grant received from the federal government in recognition of Canada’s 100th birthday. Mould continued to guide the development of the library until her retirement in 1974, including the construction of an addition in 1971. Today, the library remains at its location on Alfred Avenue and continues to serve the Smithers community. Wendy Wright became Library Director in 2014.

History / Biographical
Harry Kruisselbrink was born in the Netherlands in 1941 in the early part of World War II. The family immigrated to Canada in 1951 and lived in Barrett Lake just west of Houston. They moved to Smithers in 1952. Starting in 1955, he spent 40 years working in the communications industry, all of it in northern British Columbia. He met his wife Audrey in 1963; they were married in 1965 and had three children. He retired from the communications industry in 1995. Harry’s interest in local history began in his High School years. His teacher, Lee Curley, was able to convey his enthusiasm for history onto his students, including Harry. At about that same time Harry received a camera as a Christmas gift and since then rarely goes anywhere without it. In 1969, he became a founding member of the Smithers environmental group called SPEC. He joined the local air search and rescue group in 1972. The following year he was elected to Smithers Town Council and served three two-year terms. After retiring from Council, he continued to serve on the Town’s Planning Committee for many years. His wife and he were foster parents for 27 years. Harry was a member of the Smithers’ 60th Anniversary Committee that published the book, “Smithers from Swamp to Village,” written by author Lynn Shervill. Harry has written a number of historical sketches including a book “Smithers – A Railroad Town” and “Beyond the Call of Duty – The Adventurous Life of Rev. F. L. Stephenson”.

History / Biographical
Talk of forming a Bulkley Valley Agricultural Association to oversee the planning of an exhibition began in 1910 (Interior News, May 1910). Various names were used before incorporation, such as: Bulkley Valley Agricultural Association (Interior News, July 27, 1912), Bulkley Valley Agricultural Association and Farmer’s Institute (Omineca Herald, June 7, 1913) and Bulkley Valley Agricultural and Industrial Exhibition Association (Interior News, June 21, 1919). On July 14, 1919, the Bulkley Valley Agricultural and Industrial Association was incorporated under the Agricultural Act. The mandate of the Association was to "advance the interests of agriculture and to hold an annual exhibition of agricultural products at Smithers, and to do all such other things the directors may decide for the advancement of the association, the farmers and farming." The first directors of the Association included A. Kilpatrick (President, Smithers), J. G. Wood (Vice-President, Telkwa), and L.B. Warner (Secretary Treasurer, Smithers), George Oulton (Smithers), A. J. Prudhomme (Telkwa), E. C. Barger (Telkwa) and William S. Henry (Smithers) (Interior News, June 21, 1919). Smithers held its first Fall Fair in Albert Park, September 30th, 1919. After several years the Fair became a three-day event, presenting a wide variety of exhibits including agricultural displays, livestock and logging shows, handicraft and homemaking exhibits, stage shows, and a midway.
