First Nations Public Library Week
February 13, 2017 00:00 – February 18, 2017 23:59
Theme: Revitalizing Community Spirit
Since 2000, First Nation Public Libraries have used one week every February to raise awareness of their resources, services, programs and activities. In First Nation communities, this week is not only an opportunity to promote public library services, but it also celebrates cultural uniqueness through creative library programming. As a multi-level, multi-purpose program that encourages all Ontario libraries to join in its celebration, First Nations Public Library Week is an event that can be enjoyed by library patrons and community members across the province.
About the Theme
Revitalizing Community Spirit is a theme that inspires First Nation public libraries to recognize and build upon their social responsibility to be part of an important community network. The theme encourages libraries to foster human connection, family socialization, and relationship building.
