October is Canadian Library Month! During this month, libraries and library partners across Canada raise awareness of the valuable role libraries play in Canadians’ lives.
In Ontario, the first week of October features First Nations Public Library Week, September 29 to October 5, and the third week of October is Ontario Public Library Week. (If the third week of October falls on a statutory holiday, OPLW will be held the following week.)
Ontario Library Association (OLA) is excited to be the provincial coordinator for Ontario Public Library Week. As the coordinator, OLA provides public libraries and public library supporters with various promotional resources for Ontario Public Library Week. OLA also organizes the OPLW launch event and facilitates the OPLW contest using #oplw.
For 2020, Ontario Public Library Week will take place October 18 to October 24, 2020.
This year has been scaled back due to the pandemic. Check out our Facebook page for contests and our annual used book sale is October 21-24, 2020.
