Message from the CEO, Frances Newman

Be sure not to miss our annual Heritage Showcase on Saturday, November 4th from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at the McLaughlin Library. Along with our community partners such as the Oshawa Museum, the Oshawa Regiment Museum, and the Robert McLaughlin Gallery, we will be focusing on Canadian history in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday.

New for the Heritage Showcase this year will be the launch of Pass the Book, Oshawa’s very own version of Canada Reads, a community-wide reading event where we encourage everyone to read the same book. This year’s book ties in well with the Heritage Showcase Canadian history theme. I’ll give you a few hints as to the title. It’s a fictional novel set during a major catastrophe that happened 100 years ago in my home town of Halifax. Can you guess the book?

See you at the Library!
Frances Newman
CEO, Oshawa Public Libraries
