Canada

  • The City of Calgary has been planning for a new Central Library since 2004, when it first devoted funds to study future library needs.
  • Throughout 2012, more than 16,000 Calgarians participated in an extensive public engagement program to provide input into the function of Central Library and the role of the Library within the community.
  • The building’s architects are Snøhetta, an international firm, and Calgary’s DIALOG, while CMLC leads the construction.
  • The 240,000 square foot building has five levels that will contain about 600,000 items.
