Until September 30—DOUBLE your impact, DOUBLE the books!

Inspired by the impact of the Library’s amazing array of books, audiobooks, ebooks, and the many other items that Library members can borrow for free with a Library card, an anonymous donor will match all donations made to collections until the end of the month, up to $10,000!

So far this year, active Library members have borrowed a total of 8.2 million items! Thanks to borrowing habits like these, the average Library cardholder saves more than $300 every year.

Has the price of a book ever kept you from reading?

The average cost of a paperback book in Canada is $16.34. For many Calgarians, using a Library card to borrow books is the only way they have to access books to read. With the rising cost of living, rates of borrowing books and other Library resources are at an all-time high—and we need more books to meet the growing demand.

Will you help us reach our goal and add 25,000 books to Library shelves this year?
