A cornerstone for the future of the Calgary Public Library is the New Central Library. Providing approximately 240,000 sq. ft. of usable library space, the New Central Library will be a multi-faceted family destination and gathering place with a physical collection of approximately 600,000 books and specially designed space for programs and technology.
Construction is underway in Calgary’s East Village with the opening slated for 2018.
As the developer and co-funder of the New Central Library in East Village, Calgary and Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC) has been working closely with Calgary Public Library and the City of Calgary to realize the vision for the New Central Library.
