Spring Has Sprung at the Calgary Public Library

by Katie Murray · 1 comment


Last month, Calgary city council unanimously approved funding for the new and exciting Central Calgary Public Library. The multi-million dollar project will see vast changes to the library space and programming, and will encourage a shifting focus that keeps the library in line with the ever evolving digital world.

The CPL has been working to engage Calgarians and gathering feedback about how, when, and why the Central Library is used. The new Library will stand not far from where the current Central Branch is, but will be very different both inside and out. While we all wait with baited breath for new plans and more information on this exciting project, there is no shortage of great things happening at our current (and pretty awesome) Central Library!

The Calgary Public Library’s Ecopaloza kicks off right NOW with a clothing drive at Central. Visit the library on April 6th from 10 am – 3 pm for a FREE clothing swap! A great excuse to spring clean your closet!

If you haven’t filed your taxes yet (which puts you comfortably in the majority…), visit the library in April for a one-on-one tax clinic. This clinic, in partnership with the Calgary and Area United Way, will help to answer you tax questions and assist you with your return. The Central Library will host this clinic on Saturday, April 27th. This clinic is designed to help those with lower incomes: visit the CPL’s web site to check if you are eligible.

How about celebrating some art? Join in for a tour of the City of Calgary’s art collection, displayed on the +15 network. Meet on the main floor of the Central Library at noon on April 25th.
