Join us on the evening of July 27 for a tour of some of Calgary's stunning new cultural centres!

This year's Calgary Libraries in Action event will feature a library crawl, including tours of three new Calgary libraries and archives. The crawl will start off with a tour of the National Music Centre Archives at Studio Bell, followed by a walking tour of the Calgary Public Library's new Central Library building, currently under construction.
