Help plant the seeds of knowledge and opportunity for all Calgarians. Become a monthly donor today. Monthly gift donors will receive one tax receipt at year-end.

Annual $500+

More than a century ago, Annie Davidson and founding members of the Calgary Womens Literary Club stirred our city to action and secured the public and financial support to build the first library. They saw the Library cause as an investment for their families and the generations of Calgarians that would follow.


100 years later, it is our priviledge to ask you to stand with us in support of our Library. In a busy world, todays library is the communitys living room, where children are nurtured to learn to read, newcomers to Canada are welcomed, and the direction of a life can be positively changed through the services and support provided by Library
staff. Your donation can and will make a difference in helping to build our library and community.
