Celebrate Canadian Library Month @ your library!

Ok , so I know that it's already mid-October, but it's not too late to celebrate Canadian Library Month!  This year’s theme is: Your Library: Your World, so why not show your community how important libraries are.  Libraries are part of everyone’s world and this is your chance to encourage people to use their local library.

Here some ideas for celebrating from Consulting Services:
  • Have an open house to highlight library resources
  • Library card promotions
  • Invite local artists, politicians, business people etc. to speak up about the value of the library
  • Invite a local author to do a reading or book signing 
  • Booktalk at a local school
  • Send our a special edition of your newsletter
  • Put an article about the library in your local newspaper 
  • Put up a special display that highlights a part of the collection that is unique
  • Organize library tours
  • Hold a reading contest
  • Host a family reading night 
The library is a very important part of our communities, so spread the word!!  For more information on Canadian Library Month you can visit .

If your library is participating in Canadian Library Month, post a comment and tell us about it!
