Canada’s libraries are evolving to meet the needs of an increasingly information-driven society.
In October, this evolution is celebrated during Canadian Library Month. The theme, Your Library, A Place Unbound, highlights the shift to innovations such as digital and downloadable books, music, movies, electronic databases, gaming and reaching out to library users via social media.
Today, there are over 22,000 libraries in incredibly diverse Canadian communities, from major metropolitan areas to towns and rural hamlets, from research-intensive universities to colleges of art and design. (By comparison, there are just over 3,000 Tim Hortons stores in Canada.)
