Visit your West Grey Library during Ontario Public Library Week
WEST GREY, Ontario – October is Canadian Library Month and the week of October 14-20 is Ontario Public Library Week. West Grey Library is celebrating with contests, prizes and interactive events.
Recognizing the value libraries bring to their communities, West Grey Council passed the declaration of Ontario Public Library Week at the October 15 Council meeting.
“Strong libraries contribute to strong communities,” said West Grey Chief Librarian Kim Storz. “When you consider the role libraries play in life-long learning, this year’s theme – ‘a visit will get you thinking’ – is a great call to action to visit, or revisit, your local library.”
To celebrate Ontario Public Library Week, all branches of the West Grey Library are asking the public to share their personal stories of how libraries have made a difference in their lives.
All branches are also participating in a “spine poet” contest. Books are lined up so the spine titles make a poem, sentence or story and patrons build on the story by adding more spines.
“The spine poet contest is a fun, interactive way to get involved,” said Sarah Watts Branch Librarian. “We never know where the story will go, which is part of the fun. And, of course, what’s a contest without prizes? We encourage everyone to stop by your local branch, get involved and you may just win one of the books we are giving away.”
More information is also available on the West Grey Library website and the Ontario Library Association website.
