Calgary's Memorial Park Library and surrounding Central Memorial Park have been designated a national historic site. The library is an elegant classically inspired sandstone building in the Beltline. It was the first public library building in Alberta. The park is the oldest in Calgary, with a geometric pattern of plants, pathways and grass. It's also home to several important monuments. Julia Harrington is the community outreach librarian with Central Memorial park Library. She joined Doug Dirks in studio.
