Tour of the Library
On October 28 some JASNA Calgary members with their friends and family did a sidewalk tour of the New Central Library.
Our host and guide was Daniel, a bright spark from the Calgary Public Library Foundation.
During a video of the planned interior we learned that the building is "sealed" and interior "fit and finishing" is underway.
Opening in 2018 November, the signaturde building sits above the CTrain line and will be accessed by a grand ramp entrance line with natural wood.
Even from the outside, we could see ourselves reading, playing, learning, and possibly holding JASNA meetings.
Any group can arrange a sidewalk tour of the New Central Library by contacting the Calgary Public Library Foundation.
JasnaCalgary is a region of the Jane Austen Society of North America.
We are all interested in everything Jane, from love of her novels to scholarly pursuits.
Five times a year we meet to enjoy talks, workshops, teas, and galas.
Attend a meeting and if you have fun, join in!
Membership is $15.00 annually to cover our tea and cakes and other expenses.
Our meetings are 2:00 - 4:00, held at Sunalta Community Association, 1627 10 Ave SW, a location that is wheelchair accessible.
