Avanti sent us her top ten things to do in and around Calgary this summer:

1. Sleep - No alarms, no schedules, just time to sleep!
2. Hike - Take weekend trips to Banff and Jasper to enjoy the great outdoors.
3. Boat - Rent a boat and spend a fun-filled day at the lake!
4. The Calgary Stampede - Enjoy the greatest outdoor show on Earth!
5. Festivals - Check out the scene with Globalfest, Expo Latino and Tastes of Calgary, to name a few.
6. Calaway Park - Roller coaster, anyone?
7. Calgary Zoo - “Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!”
8. Farmers Markets - The food looks AMAZING!
9. Drumheller - Badlands, hoodoos and dinosaurs: a great combination!
10. Spruce Meadows - Lots of cool tournaments to watch!

The 5th Annual Prom Dress Extravaganza!

by Emily - 0 Comment(s)

Prom season is upon us again and the library wants to help you find the perfect dress for a memorable evening with your friends! Drop by our participating locations to browse the dresses we have and why not tell your friends so you can make a girls' day of it? There will be a number of talented, volunteer designers on hand to help you find the perfect fit, or feel free to bring a dress you already own and our volunteers will be happy to lend their expertise to resize or update it for you.

This event will be held at the following libraries:

Forest Lawn Library: Saturday, March 1, 1-3:30 p.m.

Southwood Library: Saturday, March 8, 2-5 p.m.

Village Square Library: Saturday, March 15, 1-3:30 p.m.


Even if your own prom is past, your party dress can still do some good — we are happy to accept donations of gently used formal wear at any library location!
