Please join us for a virtual Town Hall exploring My First Bookshelf, a new Calgary Public Library early learning program in partnership with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Through this donor-funded program, children from birth to age five receive a free, personalized book every month. They get to keep these books forever.

For many of us, it is hard to imagine a household without books. Yet many children in our community are growing up with bare bookshelves at home. The global pandemic has made access to books even more challenging. Join us to learn more about the incredible impact of this program and how you can make a difference in 2021 and beyond.

Watch the recording.

Program in partnership with:

The My First Bookshelf pilot is made possible thanks to

Calgary Foundation, Canada Life, The Dollywood Foundation of Canada, the McNamara Family, Rotary Club of Calgary East, Rotary Partners of Calgary at Stampede Park, and donors of the Calgary Public Library Foundation.
