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 Thursday, September 30th.

Regular hours will be in effect on Friday, 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 Thursday, September 30th. Regular hours will be in effect on Friday, October 1st.
 

Indigenous Authors on National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Join bestselling, award-winning children’s authors David A. 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.
