We asked you to collaborate with us to create a permanent, browsable collection filled with your artwork, and you delivered. Together, we created a collection of sketchbooks that show off the artistic expression of Calgary teens.

In collaboration with Antyx, the Library created the Calgary Youth Sketchbook Collection by sending sketchbooks, supplies and prompts to teens all around the city. Each of them filled a unique sketchbook and sent them back to us to be put on permanent display. 

View the sketchbooks in the Teen Centre at Central Library.
