About

Our mission


The Calgary Public Library Foundation empowers people to make a difference in their community. All donations received through the Library Foundation cultivate innovation and bring the Library to those who need it most.


With 740,000 members and 21 locations across the city, the Calgary Public Library has inspired life stories of Calgarians for more than 100 years. It is the second largest library system in Canada and the sixth largest municipal library system in North American. Last year, Calgarians borrowed more than 14.4 million physical and digital items and experienced 6.9 million in-person visits.
