October is designated as Canadian Library Month. Throughout Canada, the month raises public awareness of the valuable role that libraries play in the everyday lives of Canadians. The theme for Canadian Library Month and Ontario Public Library Week 2014 is “Libraries Inspire”
Join us Saturday October 25 10:00am - 2:30pm for the 2nd annual Human Library Event. Participants will have the unique opportunity to "check out" or have a conversation with a living "book" - a real live person with an interesting life story to share. Sign up at the library for your 20 minute conversation. Space is limited.
Human books include: Dr. Eva Olsson, motivational speaker and Holocaust survivor; Detective Dave Allen of the local OPP; Robin Knowles-Clipsham, performer, producer and teacher of drama; Dr. Patrick Boyer, noted local author and former parliamentarian; Shawn Forth, spokesperson for the Gay community in Muskoka and Graeme Murray, paralympian on the Canadian sledge hockey team.
Book Bags on sale now! Versatile book bags in a choice of two colours both with a unique Muskoka graphic by local artist Wendie Donabie. $12 each. Support your Friends. Support your library.
