New Central Library Exterior Walking Tour

Hey there Bibliophiles!

Something all CAFE members have in common is our love of words. When we take a break from editing, we’re likely still consuming copious amounts of words for enjoyment, whether reading works of fiction or chipping away at our own magnum opuses. And one extraordinary place of words that has us speaking in hushed tones of reverence is the library.

As you may know, the new Calgary Central Library is opening its doors to the public this coming fall. We can hardly wait! In celebration, CAFE and the Calgary Public Library are partnering together to give members a walking tour of the new space.

Join us April 13th at 5pm to find out how the library can help your business and explore the beautiful new architecture housing the timeless goodness of the written word.

Afterwards, we’ll be heading to Phil & Sebastian’s headquarters (618 Confluence Way SE) for a hot cocoa and some light discussion with good company.

Date: April 13th

Time: 5 pm (hour-long tour)

Location: The tour begins at the Library Experience which is located on the main floor of the Calgary Public Library Foundation (429 8 Ave SE) in the East Village. From the outside it’s a narrow brick building with “Hillier Block” written across the top and is across the road from the St. Louis Hotel building.The Library Experience space is conveniently located close to the New Central Library, and a 3 minute walk from the City Hall C-train station.

Parking: Street side parking along 8 Avenue is your best bet. As you drive into East village there will also be parking lots along 4 Street that charge by the hour as another option.

Cost: Free (plus P&S hot coco for CAFE attendees)


Further information from the Calgary Public Library:

In anticipation of the New Central Library opening in November of 2018 the Calgary Public Library Foundation is offering exterior walking tours of the new space. These hour-long tours are an opportunity to learn about the design, architecture, and projected use of space in the new building. The Library Experience space features renderings, floor plans and a purposeful design that will mimic what you can expect to see in the New Central Library Space.
