Happy Canadian Library Month!!!
infoDOCKET would like to wish our many Canadian readers (thank you for your support) a wonderful Canadian Library Month 2013.
From a CLA Announcement:
This year’s theme, Libraries Connect/Bibliothèques Branchées, speaks to the need that all Canadians have to connect with each other on a personal and social level.
Libraries provide a place where individuals and groups can connect as they explore ideas,thoughts and facts. Libraries help to connect ideas of the past,to those of the present and the future. The CanadianUrban Libraries Council reports that library use has increased by 45% in the past decade. This shows that from sea to sea to sea, libraries provide information and connect people to the resources they need – regardless of who they are, where they are from or what they want to know.
