Driver (Permanent Part-Time)

In January of 2015, the Calgary Public Library launched an exciting and ambitious strategic plan that will re-imagine library services for Calgarians today and into the future.

The new Calgary Public Library represents unlimited possibilities and inspires people of all ages to wonder, seek, discover, and share. Calgary’s 18 (and growing) community libraries are community hubs that ignite learning, discussion, invention, and action and this is accomplished through the Library’s commitment to:

  • be a vital part of strengthening neighbourhoods in a growing city
  • bring the library into more people’s lives by removing barriers and increasing access to information in all its forms
  • focus on services that make a difference
  • develop innovative and collaborative partnerships with our community to leverage collective knowledge and expertise
  • build welcoming, inclusive and dynamic library spaces and places within the heart of our communities.

To achieve our vision, Calgary Public Library is seeking leaders with ideas, energy, passion and commitment who can help us make a difference in the lives of Calgarians and take public library services to a new level of excellence.
