Canadian Library Month

Canadian Library Month
Mois des bibliothèques au Canada

October is Canadian Library Month! All month long, libraries and library partners across Canada are raising awareness of the valuable role libraries play in Canadians’ lives.

More than just a place to find books, libraries promote cultural awareness, engage in the community, provide educational programs, support freedom of expression and so much more. #canadianlibrarymonth #onecard #onemillionpossibilities #CLM

This year’s theme is Shki Kendaang/Learning New Things Together. Over the past 2 years, we have all had to learn new ways of doing the work we do. Shki Kendaang encompasses the challenges and successes that library staff have had serving communities during the pandemic. #FNPLW
