Join in recognizing Canadian Library Support Staff Day, Friday, October 16
Message from Mandy Savery-Whiteway, Director of Education.
The third Friday of October is designated as Canadian Library Support Staff Day. This year it is recognized on Friday, October 16.
Achieving Excellence & Equity, Learning & Leadership, Public Confidence and Well-Being are priorities in the 2015-2020 Strategic Plan, supported through Growing with Character. In support of these priorities, library technicians at Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board engage with students each day to promote literacy and a love of reading. They connect students and staff with library resources to support student learning, achievement and well-being. Their skills are a vital part of keeping our school libraries and learning commons areas as the literacy hubs of our schools.
According to the Canadian Library Association, the purpose of the day “is an opportunity to demonstrate our appreciation for the efforts of library technicians, library assistants, library clerks, shelvers, and all other support staff who help ensure libraries remain integral to communities served through our public, private, school, government, academic, and corporate libraries.”
Please join in recognizing Canadian Library Support Staff Day on Friday, October 16, 2015.
