Calgary Reads

We help ensure children across Alberta become confident, joyful readers through advocacy, access to books, and literacy programming and resources.

The Children's Reading Place

The Children’s Reading Place is about spreading the joy of reading throughout our community. It’s based on the simple idea that if you create a comfortable, fun space for children to read, they will. And when that happens, their imaginations are ignited and their confidence grows. We’ve transformed a heritage house in Calgary’s Inglewood neighbourhood into a welcoming hub of reading where school groups and families can come to experience the pleasure of curling up with a good book. Children can read on their own or enjoy a story read aloud by a parent, caregiver, Reader in Residence or House Mother. They can also choose a free book to take home and keep.

The Children’s Reading Place is free but open by appointment only.
