On December 13, at the Garrison Brewing Company across from the Seaport Market, we will be hosting the annual Holly Jolly.
The event is open to all staff and students working in, or with an interest in, information management. It’s a great chance to connect with colleagues and friends, and if you’re new to the community, the Holly Jolly is a great way to meet people.
Tickets are 20$ or 10$.
A 20$ ticket includes 4 Garrison beer (12-oz), while a 10$ ticket includes unlimited Garrison soda. (All tickets include snacks and a door prize ticket.)
There will also be a 50/50 draw (license AGD-107115-18) and a ticket auction for some great prizes!
October is a special month in the library community.
First of all, it’s Canadian Library Month, a time to consider and promote the contributions of Canada’s libraries to their communities. This year’s theme is ‘A Visit Will Get You Thinking.’
We know all about the things that libraries do, but it’s a chance to remind others that while many of today’s libraries still offer print collections, they’re also doing so much more. As it says on the CFLA site,
libraries promote cultural awareness, engage in the community, provide educational programs, support freedom of expression and so much more.
The other occasion we’ll be marking is Canadian Library Workers’ Day on October 19, 2018.
While Canadian Library Month is focused on the impact of libraries, Canadian Library Workers’ Day (CLWD) ‘recognize[s] the valuable contributions made by all those who work in and for the public, academic, school, government, academic, corporate and private libraries that are integral to our communities.’
So, let’s celebrate our profession and invite the community to join us. Here’s to us!
Promote Canadian Library Month wherever you are. You’ll find promotional materials — courtesy of the Ontario Library Association — at
