Today is Canadian Library Workers Day!
About Canadian Library Workers Day
It’s a chance for each of us to say thank you to those who lead these learning hubs in our school communities. Beyond lending books and supporting research, library workers provide valuable contributions to all those in the Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB). Whether it’s a student discovering the joy of reading, or a staff member who is looking for the right reference to support their teaching, library staff are always there to help by sharing their expertise.
Libraries are more than just a place to find books. Libraries help to:
- Promote cultural awareness
- Increase engagement in the community
- Provide educational programs
Libraries in the WRDSB
Across the WRDSB, library workers:
- Increase student engagement in reading and literacy development
- Foster a culture of inquiry and critical thinking
- Support personal, social and cultural growth
