I have the pleasure of teaching English to new Canadians, and when they ask about resources, I never miss the opportunity to mention the library. Surely I have a vested interest in promoting the use of the library - I’ll be completely transparent about that. But, I honestly believe there is no other institution in Calgary which offers the same value for your dollar than the Calgary Public Library.
- Calgary Public Library has materials in over 35 world languages.
- We offer conversation clubs for those who want to meet new friends and practice English at the same time.
- A variety of our programs are taught in Cantonese, Punjabi or Spanish.
- Our online databases allow access to hundreds of daily newspapers from around the world.
- Tell Me More, the award winning language learning software, is available at no cost, on our website. Your library card is your subscription.
