Ontario Public Library Week: October 18 - 24, 2020

October is Canadian Library Month! During this month, libraries and library partners across Canada raise awareness of the valuable role libraries play in Canadians' lives.

In Ontario, the first week of October features First Nations Public Library Week, October 4 to October 10, administered by OLS-N. The third week of October is Ontario Public Library Week. (If the third week of October falls on a statutory holiday, OPLW will be held the following week.) October also features Canadian School Library Day on October 26 (administered by Canadian School Libraries). 

Ontario Library Association (OLA) is excited to be the provincial coordinator for Ontario Public Library Week. As the coordinator, OLA provides public libraries and public library supporters with various promotional resources for Ontario Public Library Week. OLA also organizes the OPLW launch event.

For 2020, Ontario Public Library Week will take place October 18 to October 24, 2020.

First Nations Public Library Week - Coordinated by Ontario Library Service - North

Since 2000, First Nation public libraries have used one week of the year to raise awareness of their resources, services, programs and activities. First Nations Public Library Week is celebrated the first week of October to coincide with Canadian Library Month.

First Nations Public Library Week is not only an opportunity to promote public library services but also to celebrate cultural uniqueness through creative library programming. We encourage all Ontario libraries to join in its celebration!

Please visit the First Nations Public Library Week website for more information about the program history and updates.

Thank You Last Year's Ontario Public Library Week Sponsors and Supporters!
