Early Learning Centres

Free spaces for young children to learn through play

Vibrant and interactive spaces at 12 libraries that support early literacy practices.

Early Learning Centres are designed to be flexible, open-ended, and interactive. Features such as experiential and moveable activity centres, props, and games support play and active learning through talking, singing, reading, and writing.

The future of Early Learning Centres

Philanthropic support from individuals, organizations, and all levels of government have made our Early Learning Centres possible. Learn more about how you can invest in early learning at the Library by visiting the Calgary Public Library Foundation's website.
