    Our Summer. Read. contest is finally here!

    With the Central Library closed and our website down due to the recent flood, the online portion of Summer. Read. is a few weeks behind schedule. We're now back up and running with a few changes: the online contest will now be seven weeks long instead of 10 and we have more weekly prizes to give away in a shorter time period! So without further delay...

    It's easy to be inspired in the summer!

    With new books, DVDs, and magazines coming into the library all the time, you can always find new ways to be creative.  How can you be creative this week?  How about starting that novel you’ve wanted to write?  Could you learn to play an instrument or get involved in a new hobby? 

    Visit any of our 17 branches and discover all the new and exciting ways to express your creativity!  Then fill in an online ballot (or a paper version at your branch) to tell us which books, CDs, or DVDs are stoking your creative fire and you will be entered to win a 32 GB Google Nexus 7 tablet and great weekly prizes.

    About Summer. Read.

    Summer. Read. is a summer-long reading adventure! Every week we'll feature a new theme in our Readers’ Nook blog to inspire you to borrow a new book, DVD or CD from the Library. Fill out an online ballot to tell us what you're reading (or watching, or listening to) and enter to win one of five 32 GB Google Nexus 7 Tablets, and weekly prizes of leather-bound journals and Calgary Public Library tote bags. You can also enter by filling out a paper ballot at your local branch. Good luck!
