Welcome October!

October is here!  Read on for details on our annual fall wreath class, halloween escape room, and author visit with Denis Stokes.


2023 First Nation Public Library Week


The 2023 theme describes the act of coming together as one group to understand and support each other. The act of solidarity is described in three languages:

  • SKAÍHWA’T - Mohawk - the concept of consensus on one matter, standing together
  • DGOGAABWI - Anishinaabemowin - stand with others, participate with others

The imagery on the poster depicts the unity public librarians experience. Click below to learn more.
