First Nations Public Library Week takes place this year from October 4-8. The celebration of First Nations Public Libraries coincides with Canadian Library Month.

Every year since 2000, the Ontario Library Service takes time to celebrate the important work accomplished by First Nation librarians and acknowledge the importance of libraries as community and cultural hubs.

This year’s theme is Shki Kendaang/Learning New Things Together. Over the past 2 years, we have all had to learn new ways of doing the work we do. Shki Kendaang encompasses the challenges and successes that library staff have had serving communities during the pandemic. 

The Champlain Library is encouraging patrons to celebrate Indigenous excellence and borrow a book from our selection of Indigenous authors.
