A book can change a life. The characters become friends, the settings transport us to far away places and reading helps us feel less alone. But getting books to people who need them is not always easy. With your help, Calgary Public Library is removing barriers to access.

Your donation can:

  • purchase a book in many formats; audiobooks, eBooks, children’s books, and more
  • support the delivery of books to a seniors’ care facility or children’s day home, providing books to those who cannot safely visit the Library for curbside pick-up
  • fill a shelf with books, expanding minds and helping us feel more connected
