October 4 - October 8

Stop by the Marathon Public Library to see the display of Indigenous books, featuring titles for all ages!

First Nation Public Library Week takes place this year from October 4-8. The celebration of First Nations Public Libraries coincides with Canadian Library Month.

Every year since 2000, we take time to celebrate the important work accomplished by First Nation librarians and acknowledge the importance of libraries as community and cultural hubs.

This year’s theme is Shki Kendaang/Learning New Things Together. Over the past 2 years, we have all had to learn new ways of doing the work we do. Shki Kendaang encompasses the challenges and successes that library staff have had serving communities during the pandemic.

The week of programming that celebrates Indigenous literature and art as well as discussing the importance of libraries as community archives. Most events will be open to the general public, with some exceptions.
