Orange Shirt Day – Storytime with Francine Desjardins
September 30, 2022 , 10:00 am - 11:30 am Free
When Phyllis Webstad went to St. Joseph’s Residential School for the first time, she took with her a shiny new orange shirt that her grandmother bought for her. That shirt was taken away and never returned and has become a symbol of the Every Child Matters
movement. On September 30th, we remember and recognize the survivors of residential schools. The Perth & District Union Public Library is honoured to support this movement with a live Storytime in our garden. Francine Desjardins will share stories and songs that celebrate Indigenous culture.
The program will run for 1 hour and starts at 10:00 am. Register on our website or give us a call at 613-267-1224. In case of inclement weather, the program will be held indoors at the library.
