Doors Open Calgary: Do YYC Naked. This great event kicks off on Friday September 27 with a party sponsored by Yelp at Theatre Junction Grand. This year the venues that are going to allow you to see under their skirts, so to speak, are many and varied. There are a lot of City of Calgary sites, such as the Colonel Walker house, several of the city cemeteries, the Shepard landfill and the Fire Department training centre. Other places that you can see “naked” are Hillhurst Cottage School, cSPACE at King Edward School, Fort Calgary, and the National Music Centre. A map and list and an RSVP link for the kick-off party and all the other information you need to Do YYC Naked can be found at the Doors Open website.

Family History Coaching: We’re kicking off a new season of Family History Coaching at the Central Library starting on Saturday September 28 at 10 am. Coaches from the Alberta Family Histories Society and staff from Calgary Public Library will be on hand to help you with your family history research. Everyone is welcome from absolute newbies to the more seasoned researcher because, hey, we can all use a bit of help sometimes. There is no need to register in advance, just drop-in. We meet in the genealogy area on the 4th floor. Information can be found on our Programs page.

Calgary Herald Book Launch: And finally, Pages on Kensington and the Calgary Public Library are hosting the official launch of the book The Flood of 2013: A Summer of Angry Rivers Book foreword by our Mayor, Naheed Nenshi. This book chronicles how the Calgary Herald marshaled its reporters, photographers, videographers, and digital producers to cover the largest news event to have occurred in Southern Alberta. A number of special guests, including Herald journalists, photographers, and other special guests will be on hand to recount their flood experiences. This will take place in the John Dutton Theatre at the Central Library on Monday September 30 at 7 PM. For information and to register, visit our website. You can also register in person at a library branch or by telephone at 403-260-2620. Join us for this historic event!
