Did You Know? Early Learning Centres Are the Place to Play

Did you know the Library has ten Early Learning Centres throughout the city? Early Learning Centres are vibrant and interactive spaces for young children to learn through play. Each is built around a distinct concept, like Into the Woods at Shawnessy Library or Bird’s Eye View at Crowfoot Library. Watch our new video at to learn why we’re creating these special spaces for Calgary’s littlest learners. Plus, visit our newest space — built around a helicopter! — at Seton Library this January.
