Creating a time capsule of steel

As a Calgary Public Library member, you are invited to attend a very special celebration as the last beam of New Central Library is readied for placement.

The final steel beam of the building's skeletal structure is about to be placed, and we're commemorating this milestone by adding your stamp to the project.

Come prepared to create a time capsule by inscribing, painting, and drawing your favourite lyrics, sonnets, poems or inspirational messages for future generations of Calgarians.

Join us on 8th Avenue SE any time between 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. to put your signature on The Last Beam and share a note about the impact New Central Library will have on your life and the life of our great city!
