October is Canadian Library Month

Canadian Library Month

Throughout October, libraries across Canada celebrate and raise awareness about the impact and significance libraries play in this country. This national event is a chance to highlight the importance of libraries in the pursuit of literacy, knowledge and lifelong learning.

In 2017, the Ontario Library Association has taken the lead in providing a theme “A Visit Will Get You Thinking” as well as bookmarks, posters and graphics. These sharable graphics can be found on DropBox, and can be printed, posted and distributed within libraries and schools throughout the province for free.

The NLLA Annual Poetry Contest is back! This year we are looking for rhyming poems that revolve around the theme “A Visit Will Get You Thinking”. We will have four separate categories for students; Primary (k-3), Elementary (4-6), Intermediate (7-9) and Secondary (10-12) where students have a chance to win a fabulous prize pack. Winners and select poems will be highlighted by the NLLA on their website and social media.

All entries must be submitted by October 23. They can be emailed to nlla.executive@gmail.com or mailed to:
