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

First Nations Public Library Week 2022

First Nations Public Library Week

October 03 to October 07, 2022

This week, we are proud to recognize First Nations Public Library Week. It is not only an opportunity to promote public library services but also to celebrate cultural uniqueness through creative library programming.

This year’s theme is Bekaa, Bzindaachagan | Wait and Listen. Bekaa is a command that is told to people who are being impatient or brash. The act of waiting and listening to what someone has to say is a form of respect and offers listeners the opportunity to learn new perspectives. Bekaa, Bzindaachagan | Wait and Listen is a reminder for us to enrich our lives by listening to others imparting knowledge, perspectives, and history.  #FNPLW
