Boxes and Boxes of Books

Thanks to our volunteers and donors, our one-day book drive in August was a smashing success!


Calgarians donated more than 55,000 books and kept staff and volunteers busy sorting and packing books, DVDs and CDs of all kinds at Nose Hill, Signal Hill, Fish Creek and Forest Lawn Libraries.


The donations were collected by BetterWorld Books, which sells books online to fund literacy initiatives. A portion of the proceeds will be returned to the Library, enabling the purchase of new and needed materials.


If you missed the Book Drive or have other books you’d like to clear off your shelves, don’t worry! All Calgary Public Library locations will accept up to 20 books (or two bags) year-round.
