We network with Friends of Library groups across Canada. Information on recent and planned events is provided, to help you link to resources shared during these sessions, or to plan to attend the next event.

There are projects we can participate in together, such as the new Canada in Literature collaboration with the Toronto Public Library.

Canada in Literature 

During the poster sessions at the OLA Super Conference we were challenged to create a national map of neighbourhood reads. Does your library have lists of books, primarily fiction, that take place in local neighbourhoods?  Can you create a map? Send us your link and we will add to our national map.
