The design of the new Calder Branch was based on the vision of the Edmonton Public Library (EPL), which is to be “the gathering place for people and ideas, enabling a lifetime of learning, engagement and possibility for every Edmontonian.” In order to achieve that vision, the Calder community needed more space to gather, learn and explore ideas. The Calder Branch relocated so it could grow from its previous 5,300 sq. ft space to its new 10,000 sq. ft., stand-alone space.
