Carlyle King Branch

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.
