Calgary Central Library was actually named one of TIME’s World’s 100 Greatest Places of 2019. The building is beautiful and intricately designed by Snohetta and houses over 450,000 books. 

Aside from their impressive collection of books, the library is also now known as an interactive event center for everyone of all ages and a vibrant educational space. They even have a digital production studio where you can record vlogs and podcasts if you want to try that out. 

This is a place that’s conducive for you to be creative and do great things. It’s also a wonderful place to get lost in an armload of books of different topics. 

You and your friends can also meet here to study and hang out. The possibilities are endless.

They’re open daily and easily accessible. You can also return materials after-hours. 

Aside from that, they’re equipped with numerous computers and printers if you don’t have your laptop with you. They also have free Wi-Fi. 

They also have meeting rooms and designated study areas that are conducive for focusing and getting work done. 

They’re also kid-friendly because they have a children’s space you can bring your kids to.

The Fish Creek Library is also a great place to read and study in. Opened in 1985, this beloved library is historical and has a lot of great amenities that you can enjoy. 

We like that they’re very inclusive and PWD accessible. They also have a children’s space, teens’ space, study rooms, and meeting rooms. 

If you need to work, they have computers and printers available to the public. They also have free Wi-Fi that you can use. 

That concludes our quick list of some of the best libraries here in Calgary. We hope we helped you decide on the best ones to visit with your family and friends. 

If you have kids, you can also take them here for an interesting educational experience. Kids in  nursery and preschool to elementary school can spend time reading here and enjoying activities.  

Older kids in high school and college can do their research projects here. Even kids in private schooling or homeschooling can benefit from the change in environment. 

If you need tutoring services, you can also hold them in these libraries. They’re very conducive for learning.
