The theme for the 2017 Ontario Public Library Week is:  A Visit Will Get You Thinking.

An annual fall event, Ontario Public Library Week was first announced by the province in 1985 and has since become the focus for promoting public library services in Ontario.

A strong library system is the cornerstone of a strong community. Ontario Public Library Week recognizes the important contribution Ontario’s public libraries make to education, literacy and life-long learning in Ontario communities.

With more than 1,134 service points throughout Ontario, public libraries’ patrons make over 72 million in person visits to local libraries across Ontario annually, as well as over 108 million electronic visits and over 19 million social media visits. Also, every library branch in the province provides access to electronic information through the internet.
