Calgary Public Library Foundation

Invest in Potentials Realized

The Calgary Public Library Foundation supports the Library through fundraising.

We connect people and organizations who want to make a difference with the opportunity to improve our shared community. All donations received through the Library Foundation enhance Library collections, programming, and services.

Since 2011, the Library Foundation has been working on Add In, the Campaign for Calgary’s Library. The goal of Add In is to raise $350 million dollars for the Library system. As of June 2019, we have reached 98.5% of our goal.

Donate your library to the Library.

The Calgary Public Library Foundation accepts donations of up to 20 items at any Library location. The Library Foundation partners with Better World Books, who then sells donated items online and shares the proceeds with us. These funds help keep collections up to date and relevant to the needs of the community.
