Information on Accessibility:

Wheelchair Access To Venue

People using wheelchairs or with mobility challenges are encouraged to enter the new Central Library through the east side, off 8 Avenue SE. There is a Calgary Parking Authority parking lot behind the Library with accessible and family stalls. There is a public exterior elevator, accessible 24/7, located across from this lot that will bring you to the entrance of the Library. If you are using this Library outside of our hours of operation, please use the intercom.

 

On the west side of the building, you will find a gradually sloping walkway. From an access point of view, the new Central Library project had the unique challenge of building over the LRT tracks and tunnel. This meant the main entry would be elevated above grade, necessitating the sloped walkway. The sloped walkway will be maintained through inclement weather and the Library’s facility team will ensure it is safe through the winter season.  

People using wheelchairs or with mobility challenges are encouraged to enter the new Central Library through the east side, off 8 Avenue SE. On the west side of the building, you will find a gradually sloped walkway.
