We are proud of the wide selection of good spiritual reading available for you. Every three or four months new books are added, keeping our various categories constantly up-to-date. There are books for children and for youth as well as many interesting adult selections.
The Diocese of Calgary has also partnered with the Franciscan at Home program. In response to the pressing need for formation in ministry highlighted in the Diocesan Phase Synod Synthesis (no. 21), the Diocese has prioritized developing a stronger and more diverse approach to support the formation of those responsible for forming others. Through our partnership with the Catechetical Institute, the Diocese is able to provide all ministry leaders with full and free access to the Institute's extensive online formation workshops that cover a broad range of topics relevant to evangelization and catechesis in the Church today. To register, please visit Franciscan at Home: Diocese of Calgary, Alberta.

Signing out a book:
Please remember when you sign out a book to take the library card out of the book (usually located on the inside of the back cover), print the date, your name and phone number on the card (use 2 lines) and place the card in the box in the corner of the library. When you return the book, place it in this same box. We ask that you return the book within 4 weeks so that others may sign it out.
Monday – Friday 7:30 am – 4:00 pm
The book return box is located outside the library door on Saturday and Sunday so that books can be returned on weekends.
Please feel free to enjoy this resource for your spiritual growth.
