Calgary Central Library, founded in 1920s is a re-developed library in its new location at Downtown East Village, working parallelly along with 20 other branches, under its Calgary Public Library flagship library system. Located in an oval-shaped building, uniquely designed resembling a kaleidoscope. With shiny pieces of glass placed together beautifully in geometric shapes, the library is one beautiful sight. The library runs on public funds and offers free membership to local residents and free access to their books. The place is visited by thousands of visitors per day and is one of the largest libraries in Canada.
