New Central Library construction site welcomes public art by local artist
It may be a while before you can actually check a book out of the New Central Library, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t read stories there. No library card needed. Simply stroll along 3rd St. SE to immerse yourself in the colourful picture book that Calgary illustrator Serena Malyon has created on the construction hoarding surrounding the NCL site: Malyon’s large watercolours depict the historical timeline of East Village from the untouched grasslands of the early 19th century to completion of the visually-stunning new library in 2018.
