Annie Davidson, 70 years old, widow and mother of 10, helped build Calgary’s first public library a century ago. The Library has been transforming and inspiring lives ever since. We honour her dream with the Annie Davidson Founders Society and are deeply grateful to the individuals and families in the Society for their generous annual gifts of $500 or more. The gift can also be given monthly.
If you have further questions or would like to become a part of the Society, please contact John Milne at 403-221-2008 or email@example.com

More than a century ago Annie Davidson and founding members of the Calgary Women’s Literary Club stirred our city to action and secured the public and financial support to build the first library. They saw the Library cause as one to be invested in for their families and the generations of Calgarians that would follow.
It is our privilege 100 years later to ask you to stand with us in support of our Public Library. We ask for your support to invest in the next 100 years of life enrichment for all who call Calgary home. In a busy world, today’s library is the community’s living room, where children are nurtured to learn to read, newcomers to Canada are welcomed, and the direction of a life can be positively changed through the services and support provided by Library staff. Your donation can – and will – make a difference in helping to build our library and community.
We invite you to join the Annie Davidson Founders Society and stand among the individuals and families who generously make annual gifts of $500 or more.
