Canadian Library Month


Canadian Library Month is a celebration of libraries and the people who work in them. Libraries play a key role in the social, cultural and economic life of communities, providing residents with a place to read, learn and share. In my observations of libraries and library staff in Canada, I am always struck by the ingenuity, creativity and innovation that define library service. These institutions have kept pace with changes in the information environment by constantly finding new ways to make information available and accessible, while encouraging partnerships and collaboration.

Canada is one of the most diverse countries in the world and we can take great pride in its rich and varied social fabric. Libraries in Canada are meeting the challenge of contributing to the continuous learning process of all Canadians and of addressing the various information needs of our communities. Libraries are at the very core of Canada's success in ensuring inclusive service in a knowledge-based society. They promote the health of Canada's economy and stimulate intellectual curiosity and knowledge sharing.

Library and Archives Canada will help promote library-related activities across the country by attending conferences in Edmonton, Toronto, Montréal and Québec, and will celebrate Canadian School Library Day on October 23. This special day gives me the opportunity to extend my particular congratulations to the school library community and to the dedicated staff who provide library service to our children and youth. A strong school library promotes a love of reading and literacy skills, and contributes to overall student achievement.

On the occasion of Canadian Library Month, we join the Canadian Library Association in celebrating the commitment, dedication and passion of library staff across the country.
