BIBLIO Library Family Campaign
Calgary Public Library staff are more than the face of the Library; you inspire and support Calgarians daily, plan and deliver innovative new programs and ensure the entire system runs smoothly. You are more than an employee—you’re an integral part of the Library Family.
To become the best public library in the world, we need to build on funding provided by the city and the province. Your support will ensure stable funding now and in the future—enhancing and protecting collections for Calgarians forever.
The BIBLIO Family Campaign is designed to offer staff, volunteers and alumni a chance to show their support for the Library. Every gift and every dollar will enhance civic and provincial funding to invest in collections across the system.
Biblio stems from the Greek word biblion, or book. It is used in the formation of compound words like biblio-phile, biblio-dreamer, or biblio-freak.
