Marigold celebrates Canadian Library Month

News Date: 
27 September 2011

October is Canadian Library Month -- an opportunity to celebrate libraries, their staff and their patrons. Marigold member libraries continue to be at the centre of their communities, a place where people learn, engage and connect with each other.

The theme, Your Library, A Place Unbound, suggests that, as part of a changing world, libraries are growing and expanding their resources as they connect people to information and reading. Innovations such as digital and downloadable books, music, movies, Internet access, electronic databases, eReaders, gaming, and the utilization of social media such as Facebook and Twitter now appeal to a whole new generation of library users!
In Alberta, regional library systems, public, academic, school and special libraries add immensely to the creativity and the personal, professional, and academic growth of Albertans. Libraries are an evolving part of our increasingly information-rich society.
Library and Archives Canada, the country’s national library, proudly collects and preserves Canada’s documentary heritage and provides access to all Canadians. From coast to coast to coast, libraries are without boundaries, places of endless opportunity where Canadians have an equal right to access resources.
Your Library, A Place Unbound. Visit your local library to join the Marigold community in celebrating Canadian Library Month -- October 2011.
