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

In Ontario, the first week of October features First Nations Public Library Week (October 2-6), and the third week of October is Ontario Public Library Week (October 16-22).

Ontario Library Association (OLA) is 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. Look out for graphics later this summer! OLA also typically organizes the OPLW launch event if applicable.

For 2023, Ontario Public Library Week will take place from October 16 to October 22, and the theme is “Libraries For Life.”
