Calgary Public Library unveils sneak peek of new central library design

Calgarians got a glimpse Thursday of what the city's new, $245-million central library will look like.

Coinciding with a limited-seating reveal event at the convention centre, the library tweeted a wide-view image of the exterior design, and the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation tweeted a slightly closer view of the building.

Calgary Public Library CEO Bill Ptacek previously said the new central library will be a “spectacular” building.

“It’ll have people from around North America coming to study it,” he said.
