Join Calgary Public Library on Sunday for the last day of the Family Fun Weekend, to enjoy outside performances and plenty of fun activities inside, too. From creating community art to writing a letter to the building, along with exploring the new tech spaces and reading nooks, there’s lots to do! And whenever you need a little extra fuel, there are nine food trucks parked on 8 Avenue SE (noon to 5 pm).
