Ontario Public Library Week: October 14 - 20, 2018
"A Visit Will Get You Thinking"

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, and the third week of October is Ontario Public Library Week.

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 and facilitates the OPLW contest using #oplw.
