Engine 23

Now your kids can be part of The New Adventures of Engine 23 at the Library as they put on their fire hats, pull on their coats, and let their imaginations soar!

Central Library's new interactive installation, a partnership between Calgary Public Library and the Calgary Fire Department, helps children play and pretend together, learn life-saving fire safety tips, and create their very own Engine 23 adventures.
