The Cochrane Public Library supports the lifelong learning goals of the Town of Cochrane community. The Library will support these endeavours through proctoring services subject to the requirements of the issuing educational institutions and the availability of the Librarians and library resources.
Examination proctoring will be provided for a fee of $20.00 per exam.
