Code of Conduct

Committed to inclusion, curiosity, and collaboration, Calgary Public Library is a community space for everyone to connect with new ideas, experiences, inspiration, and insight.

Let's work together to create a welcoming and safe Library we can all enjoy. During your visit to the Library, please:

  • Respect others
  • Take responsibility for those in your care during your visit

  • Be courteous, remembering that others want to enjoy the Library as much as you do
  • Use furniture, equipment, and spaces for their intended purposes
  • Keep all valuable personal items with you
  • Remember we all share the air and strong scents can negatively impact others
  • Create and hold only one Library membership
  • Exit the Library promptly when directed to do so

  • Abuse of any kind towards others
  • Intoxication or using intoxicating substances
