Calgary has transformed from a simple prairie town into a burgeoning metropolis of nearly 1.2 million people. The City of Calgary serves the community, which is increasingly becoming a global economic force and a capital for culture. The City and the Library are key partners in Calgary’s exciting future.
The City of Calgary provides core funding for the Library, and is a key partner for the New Central Library. Its support and longstanding bipartisan vision of the role of libraries in civic life makes the project possible—and enables the Library to improve the lives of Calgarians.
