O Canada: Highlighting books about Canada
This week, the library is highlighting Canadian Children’s Book Week. The Canadian Children’s Book Center has organized this yearly initiative, which was started in 1977. It allows Canadian authors to connect with children and teens to instill a lifelong love of reading by promoting their books in a safe and inclusive space.
