The Marigold Library System is a not-for-profit membership collective of municipalities providing affordable and progressive public library services and support. Marigold serves 343,000 residents in 43 rural and urban municipalities that surround Calgary and two First Nations Reserves. Services are largely focused on the 36 libraries in the region, although Marigold also delivers services directly to residents in a variety of ways: Library Lending Lockers, 24/7 digital resources and services on our websites, volunteer book deposits and mail services.
