Love Your Library Day

Join us on Saturday, August 18, for Calgary Public Library's Love Your Library Day! Whether you stop in at your favourite community location or visit a new-to-you Library, this free event is for all, from avid Library users to those curious about what the Library can offer.

Love Your Library Day runs from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at all 20 libraries. Staff at each location have a jam-packed schedule of activities planned, including a city-wide storytime at 11:00 am featuring special guests, family programming, behind-the-scenes Library tours, musical performances, collaborative art and story walls, scavenger hunts, and face painting.

Love Your Library Day is also a perfect time to introduce someone you know to the Library. Whether it’s been a few years since they last checked out a book, or are visiting for the first time — bring a friend to your local Library on August 18 and you will both be entered to win our Refer a Friend Grand Prize, valued at nearly $1,000, which includes:

  • Calgary Public Library Late Fine Forgiveness
  • $100 gift certificate and other prizes from Lukes Drug Mart
  • A six-month membership and other prizes from YMCA
  • 4 guest passes and other prizes from Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre
  • Literary swag from the Library Store
