Come and browse in our lovely bookstore in Calgary’s revitalized Beltline District. You just might find the book you’re looking for, but you’ll also find surprises on our shelves: books that you haven’t seen anywhere else.
We’re a literary bookstore devoted to good writing and publishing of all kinds: fiction, history, biography, philosophy, and more. We also indulge in art, photography, and graphic literature. We take special orders, host literary events, and enjoy talking to our customers about books.
Shelf Life is a store for avid readers and the unusually bookish, for browsers and meanderers, for independent minds and spirits. You can find us at the corner of 4th. St. & 13th. Ave. SW and we have a couple of parking spaces behind the building.
