Library Corner for the week of October 4th

Updated 2021/10/01

October is Canadian Library Month!  All month long, libraries and library partners across Canada are raising awareness of the valuable role libraries play in Canadian 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.  Keep using the services that your local library provides, not just in this month, but every month to make sure you are keeping them going!
