October is Canadian Library Month and Vancouver Island Regional Library staff and customers are sharing the love.
Throughout October, VIRL branches are showing off “I (heart) My Library,” a campaign that celebrates our love (or “heart”) of libraries with free “I (heart) My Library” pins and bookmarks.
Many VIRL branches will also be hosting customer appreciation days throughout the month. Customers who love their library are encouraged to visit their local branch and put on a pin to show it — because the sentiment is shared both ways.
Library month is a national initiative developed by library partners to help raise public awareness of the cherished role libraries play in the lives of all Canadians.
For more information about October “I (heart) My Library” month, visit your local library branch or online at virl.bc.ca/i-love-my-library.
The Vancouver Island Regional Library serves over 430,000 people on Vancouver Island, Haida Gwaii and the central coast through 39 branchs, the Internet and a books-by-mail service.
