Celebrating Canada's 150th at the Library
Start date: 27 January, 2017
End date: 20 December, 2017
The Library would like to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary all year long in 2017. A series of 16 free programs will inspire a deeper understanding of Canadian culture by exploring Canadian pop culture, music and literature in fun and innovative ways. The library is already a central part of the community and will further encourage community participation by focusing on a variety of programs that are not offered elsewhere in the community. A few of the programs that will be offered are: Blind Date with a Canadian Book, March Break True North Karaoke with Canadian artists; Canada Tee shirt book bag craft; Pages and Pageants, a program geared towards helping young people be prepared to find local jobs and participate in local pageants; a summer water fun program for teens and tweens taking advantage of our short Canadian summers; a Canadian literary character pumpkin decorating contest; a Lego contest featuring Canadian landmarks; preschool storytime and summer reading programs with Canada themes; and a gingerbread decorating contest with a Canadian place or building theme. The programs will be run by library staff members and volunteers, with the goal of making Canada’s 150th a memorable and inspirational event in the community.
