October is Canadian Library Month! During this month, libraries and library partners across Canada raise awareness of the valuable role libraries play in Canadians’ lives. For 2021, Ontario Public Library Week will take place October 17 to October 23, 2021 and the theme is “One Card, One Million Possibilities.”  

Explore these possibilities through the Perth and District Library’s Scavenger Hunt. This event for all ages will take place Saturday, October 30. To participate, stop by the library anytime between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Then #searchthestacks for clues that will lead to a secret password. Finally, share the password with front desk staff to receive a peanut-free treat and a book!

The Perth and District Library is also updating their Strategic Plan to guide the library over the next two years. What do you love about the library? Why don’t you use the library? Share your ideas and opinions in this short survey by October 15 at www.perthunionlibrary.ca/survey/. Complete the survey and you could win a library swag bag!
