In November of last year, the doors opened to an absolutely gorgeous new library in Calgary. Central Library’s Snøhetta-designed new home is a striking, light-filled mix of glass, wood, concrete, and steel. The graceful curves and oh! that skylight! captivated me when my hubby and I visited on opening weekend.

P.S. If you look down into the lower part of the photo, you’ll see a life-sized statue of a bison. Created by Cree artist Lionel Peyachew, it is made out of pieces of stamped metal representing words in various Indigenous languages.
