My, my, how the time flies.
The Central Library is already celebrating its first birthday this weekend, marking 365 days of books, visitors, and beautiful architecture.
To celebrate the occasion — and to thank members, supporters, and the community — the Calgary Public Library will be throwing something of a party this Saturday.

Those who would like to partake will simply need to show up any time between 9 am and 4 pm (though the sooner the better, as the first 500 people through the doors will receive a gift).
There will also be free hot chocolate or coffee from Lukes until supplies last.
Mayor Naheed Nenshi, who many Calgarians will remember gave a speech on opening day, will be in attendance for a special storytime at 10:30 am. To follow will be what is described in the release from Calgary Public Library as a “Friendship Round Dance” that will be held from noon to 12:30 pm.
Buskers, performers, and art installations will be seen throughout the entire day (until 4 pm, that is) so even if you don’t make it for the morning events, be sure to swing by to check out all the fun, regardless.
A full list of events and performers can be found here.
