Canada 150

Marking 150 years of Storytelling

The public library has always been a destination for anyone seeking knowledge and ideas. Taking its place in the heart of the community, the library is constantly growing: it grows to include more voices, more perspectives, more ideas, and more stories. Stories are the way we connect with each other; they are the way we share our experiences and how we learn from others. In Canada, where we strive towards greater diversity and mutual understanding, storytelling is at our cultural core. Lend your voice as we mark 150 years of telling Canada’s story at the Ottawa Public Library.
