More Information about the Ontario Public Libraries Annual Survey Week

Statistical information is gathered and administered by the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries, which requires all public libraries in the province to measure their activities during a typical week in October or November. The gathered data is vital in providing a representative snapshot into a library’s daily use, and helps identify usage trends and opportunities for growth or new initiatives.

Similar statistics will be recorded by other public libraries across the province this season as part of Ontario Public Libraries Annual Survey Week, which helps create a picture of public library usage locally and throughout Ontario. The measures are similar from year-to-year and the same for all public libraries, allowing for a comparison of performance measures and overall use of the library’s materials, resources, and services over time, and with other libraries across Ontario.

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation: All Locations Closed

- Comments: 0

In observance of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, all locations will be closed on Friday, September 30th.

Regular hours will be in effect on Saturday, October 1st.

 


National Day of Truth and Reconciliation.

New legislation designates September 30 of each year as National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and declares it to be a new public holiday under the Canada Labour Code. The new holiday seeks to honour First Nations, Inuit, Métis residential school survivors, their families and communities. September 30 is also Orange Shirt Day, which began in 2013 with people wearing orange shirts to remember Indigenous children forced to leave their families and attend residential schools.

In observance of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, all Library and Museum locations will be closed on Friday, September 30th. Regular hours will be in effect on Saturday, October 1st.
 

Indigenous Authors on National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Robertson (The Barren Grounds, On the Trapline), Melanie Florence (Stolen Words, Just Lucky), and Jay Odjick (illustrator of Blackflies and Bear for Breakfast, written by Robert Munsch) for this special pre-recorded library presentation.
