Highlands Branch

Designed by famed Danish architecture firm Schmidt Hammer Lassen, this new building looks like a slightly compressed “Y” with its two mirroring pitched roofs pointing into the big Edmonton sky. Inside you’ll find 30,000 borrowable books and a gallery-like main reading room that’s wide-open and flooded with natural light – one of the best spots in the city to cozy up with a good read.
