What to Know Before Visiting the Library

 Library locations are open at regular service hours, although operating at reduced capacity. We encourage you to limit your visit to 60 minutes. 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.

Masks are required

All staff and visitors are required to wear a mask inside locations. A single-use mask can be provided to visitors on request. No eating or drinking is allowed in public areas.

Maintain physical distancing

Staff and visitors must practice physical distancing at all times. Locations will have reduced capacity to support physical distancing.

Sanitization stations

Hand sanitizer is available when you enter the Library and throughout each location.

Early Learning Centres are open, but they may look a little different

For now, there will be no loose play materials at our Early Learning Centres. 

Browse the paperback tables for your next read

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.

Curbside Holds Pickup is still available

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. 

Virtual programs are available

Virtual programs are available for all ages and interests. Visit our Programs webpage to see what is coming up. All indoor group programs and events have been suspended until further notice.

Computers and printers are available to use

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
