We teamed up with the Calgary Public Library in honour of opening the new Calgary Central Library in November 2018.
Located in the East Village, the $245-million project boasts 240,000 square feet of striking architecture and functional space, with more than 30 free community meeting areas, performance hall, outdoor plazas and greenery, a 12,000-square foot children’s library, dedicated spaces for teens, recording studios, more than 450,000 collection items, and more.
The vision for the new library was to make it the Heart of Calgary and we really wanted to reflect that in our custom designed Made in Canada crewnecks that represents Calgary's love for its public library system. We hope Calgarians will wear this sweatshirt proudly, knowing the proceeds support innovative programs and services at the Library that help entrepreneurs thrive in our city!
This Made in Canada crewneck lets you represent Calgary and your love for the Library on the smoothest and softest sweater you'll ever wear.
As designer, Erin Lawrence says, "This is a warm welcoming design representing community and connections. It says a lot with just a little, and just as the library is a place for everyone, this is a sweater for everyone."
When you buy a piece of Made in Canada clothing you are voting with your heart and wallet to support Canadian manufacturing, Canadian jobs and a diversified Canadian Economy.
100% of proceeds from this purchase support the Calgary Public Library.
Take a look at the sweaters, they can be purchased right from the Library Foundation's website.
We wanted to use the Team Canada Women's Bobsleigh Team to showcase these amazing sweaters, since they as a whole are undergoing a rebrand as well, wanting to focus less on the individuals and more so on what it means to be a team. As incredible members of the community, they jumped at the opportunity to support the Library.
