January with the Calgary Public Library


Want to Read More in the New Year? Meet Libby

The new year is a popular time to make resolutions, and the Library wants to help you follow through with them. With Libby, by OverDrive, you can take millions of eBooks and audiobooks with you on your morning commute, to the gym, and around town. It’s the perfect solution for fitting more books into busy lives, and it’s free to read with your Library card…which is also free! Get started at calgarylibrary.ca/libby

Indigenous Cultures Come Alive at the Library

2019 was declared the International Year of Indigenous Languages by the United Nations. Thanks to support from the Government of Alberta, the Library was able to mark this year in a special way. We opened a new Indigenous Languages Resource Centre in Central Library that makes language lessons free and accessible to everyone. New Indigenous Placemaking installations were added at Central, Forest Lawn, and Signal Hill libraries. Finally, we launched a new collection of children’s books by aspiring Indigenous authors, written in their traditional languages. Learn more at calgarylibrary.ca/indigenous
