As part of Step 3 of the Government’s Open for Summer plan, Library locations are open at regular service hours and at full capacity. We are continuing to expand and restore services throughout the summer, but as we take a measured approach some things might still be a little different. For the most up-to-date information on our reopening, please visit calgarylibrary.ca/covid-19.
Here's what to know when you enter a location.
The Temporary Face Coverings/Mask Bylaw was repealed on July 5, 2021. That repeal includes Calgary Public Library locations.
Library staff will continue to wear masks and we encourage you to do the same.
If you need help from Library staff and aren't able to maintain social distance, we ask that you please wear a mask. This could happen if you need help at a computer station or a printer, for example.
We encourage you to continue social distancing with Library staff and Library visitors who are not with your group.
Hand sanitizer is available when you enter the Library and throughout each location.
For now, there will be no loose play materials at our Early Learning Centres.
Our collections are ready for you to explore. For some quick selections of new and notable books, stop by the paperback section near the entrance of each location. You'll find new great titles in adult fiction, non-fiction, young adult, and kids’ books.
If you prefer not to enter the Library, all of our locations except Rocky Ridge still have Curbside Holds Pickup during opening hours. Call the number posted outside the door and we'll bring your books out to you.
In addition to dozens of online events, we are introducing outdoor events throughout the summer. Visit our Programs webpage to see what is coming up. Indoor events are still on pause for now.
Desktop computers are available. You can also borrow a Chromebook to use anywhere in the Library. And, we have laptops and Chromebooks that you can borrow to take home. Learn more about all the ways to access computers and Chromebooks at the Library here.
We are looking forward to allowing room bookings in the future, but for now they are unavailable as we slowly reopen.
If you have any questions, call Library Hotline at 403.260.2600 or contact us online.
