Central Library


— Beauty and the books

Calgary’s Central Library has quickly become one of the city’s most iconic landmarks. Forward-looking and functional from the ground up, this 21st-century library serves as a cultural and physical connector that unites East Village with the Calgary core.


Tap into vast digital resources. Check out the children’s area. Book one of 30 free meeting rooms. Sign out or download a book. Sip a cup of coffee. Or just take in the building's drop-dead beauty from the inside out.

It’s a civic institution that’s welcoming to all and will inspire our city far into the future.
