Airdrie’s New Library & Multi-use Facility Project is Underway

The new 73,000 sq ft facility will be a place for the community to connect and participate in programs and activities. It will offer lifelong learning and arts development, shared multi-purpose rooms and office spaces, and an atrium for residents and visitors to enjoy.

Construction has started!

The City of Airdrie kicked-off the construction of the Multi-use and Library Facility on August 21, 2023 with a well-attended Groundbreaking Event. The event was an opportunity to celebrate all of the efforts in researching, planning, designing, and funding that have brought us to this exciting stage of the project.
