Central Library Meeting Spaces

The new Central Library has a variety of meeting spaces with everything you might need, including whiteboards, electrical outlets, and audio/visual connections and displays. You can also reserve a recording studio (audio or video) or post-production studios.

Rooms that are drop-in or same-day bookings are marked, and unless otherwise noted, rooms require advanced booking.

Small meeting rooms are for up to 12 people, the medium meeting room can also accommodate 12 people, and the large meeting rooms can be used for groups of 50 to 100 people. Special spaces including the Idea Lab and the video conferencing room can also be reserved.

The new Central Library meeting rooms are available for booking starting September 1, for events starting November 1. Select “Central Library” as the Library Location to book a meeting room in the new Central Library meeting rooms. These rooms begin with “NCL.”

Please note that we cannot provide early access for bookings that start right when the library opens. You may access your meeting rooms as soon as the Library is open for business.

All meeting rooms can be booked free of charge for Calgary Public Library members. You can register for your free Library membership online, or visit your local Library in person.

Note: We are experiencing a significant number of requests for meeting and event spaces at new Central Library. We will be contacting those who are inquiring about availability for November and December first. Thank you for your patience.
