Revolutionizing Community


Breathing new life into how Calgarians access knowledge, information, culture, and stories, Bill Ptacek, CEO of the Calgary Public Library, is revolutionizing a beloved 104-year old institution to create the best public library in the world…one community library at a time. As the 240,000 sq. ft. New Central Library transforms downtown Calgary, the Library system is revolutionizing community building for the entire city, making the Library relevant in the lives of all Calgarians.  www.calgarylibrary.ca
