Canmore Public Library

Canmore Public Library was outgrowing its building in the base of the Rocky Mountains, and had an exciting opportunity to move into a brand new community recreation centre. The architecture and design are beautiful, and the Library’s goal was to have the furnishings stay consistent with the stone work, warm rustic woods, and open, airy space. Often in the midst of Library design and construction, functionality for both staff and patrons can be compromised. The Canmore Librarians needed to ensure these important factors would not be overlooked, while still enhancing the theme of the Library.


High River Public Library

The High River Library in southern Alberta needed to create more storage space for their growing collection of books. While a renovation is on the horizon, they urgently needed to create space for more shelving. A major goal was to have it match their existing shelving. They were also looking for creative ways to drive patronage, which would in turn increase revenue and funding for future projects.


Fort McMurray Public Library

Fort McMurray’s beautiful library was constructed as part of a recreation complex, to be the premiere community space in town. Spacious and grand, the library features wall to wall, floor to ceiling glass windows, curved, modern steel architecture, and vastly open, airy space. McLennan & Company was honored to transform it into the community’s living room.
