Plaque unveiling ceremony at the Memorial Park Library

On September 27th a special plaque was unveiled, commemorating the Memorial Park Library becoming a national historic site.  It details the vision and hard effort by Annie Davidson and the women of the Calgary Women’s Literary Club to build a library. Doloris and Margaret were delighted to be part of such a heartfelt ceremony, which was attended by CPL’s own Bill Ptacek, and representatives of City Parks and Parks Canada, among others.
