February 25, 2017
Congratulations to the Brampton Library on receiving the Public Library Association’s (PLA) Upstart Innovation Award!
The Upstart Library Innovation Award honors a public library’s innovative or creative service program with a $2,000 honorarium. The 2017 winner is Brampton Library in Brampton, Ontario, Canada for its Welcoming Newcomers for Settlement Success initiative. The library partners with the City of Brampton and Brampton Transit to offer bus tours to newcomers, which take participants around to the library branches and other citywide highlights. Along the route, library staff promote collections and programs to help guide participants’ settlement success in Canada.
