The Calgary Public Library Foundation's sole purpose is to ensure
through fundraising that the citizens of Calgary have the best public
library in the world. Funds raised do not replace the Calgary Public
Library's core funding, but rather enhance the special programs and
services that the Library can provide.
The Calgary Public Library is one of the largest public library systems
in North America and the second largest civic public library system in
Canada. In 2012, Calgarians visited the Library's 18 locations more
than 5.7 million times and borrowed more than 17 million items
including books, DVDs, and e-resources.
