Celebrating Canadian Library Month

Kristen Holm, Calgary Public Library

Every year Libraries across the country celebrate Canadian Library Month in October. According to CLA, the theme of Your Library: Your World: Opening Doors to the Future "emphasizes the ability of libraries to introduce new ideas, new stories, and new ways into the world around us through both traditional and emerging technologies.”

The celebration of Canadian Library Month helps promote the crucial role that libraries play in Canadian society. From providing access to information and acting as advocates of intellectual freedom, to fostering literacy, leisure and lifelong learning, our libraries continually strive to enrich and enhance the lives of Canadians.

The Calgary Public Library is hosting a series of events in celebration of Canadian Library Month. These events include a small business trade show, a world languages fair and a weekend devoted to world travel. For more information on these events or others happening at Calgary Public Library during the month of October check out the Library's Headline News Page.
