Carlyle King Branch

Cosmo Civic Centre

The Carlyle King Branch officially opened October 16, 1979. Located in the Cosmo Civic Centre, Carlyle King was the first branch library to be part of a multi-purpose facility in Saskatoon. The branch was named in honour of Carlyle King who, in addition to a distinguished academic career, was actively involved in the Saskatchewan Library Advisory Council, the Saskatchewan Library Association and the Saskatoon Public Library Board (1955-1972).

The Carlyle King Branch is wheelchair accessible and has a 24 hour book drop available.
