Alberta Culture Days
Alberta Culture Days began in 2008 as Alberta Arts Day, a one-day event to recognize the value of Alberta's arts and cultural communities. Since then, it has expanded into a vibrant, three-day, provincewide celebration that has helped inspire the creation of Culture Days - a pan-Canadian movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities.  Alberta Culture Days is helping to achieve the goals of our province's cultural policy, The Spirit of Alberta.

Freedom to Read Week
Freedom to read can never be taken for granted. Freedom to Read Week is an annual event that encourages Canadians to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom, which is guaranteed them under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Libraries are encouraged to get involved by creating displays and hosting events related to Freedom to Read. Find many links and resources on the website.
