Message from the CEO, Frances Newman
The Auditorium at the McLaughlin Branch underwent some updates this winter thanks to funding from a Canada 150 Community Infrastructure grant. One of the highlights of the renovation was a lift to make the space wheelchair accessible and barrier free so that everyone can participate in programs. New lighting, audiovisual system, flooring, and paint has refurbished this space nicely for years to come. Best of all, the work has been completed just in time for March Break. We have some special programs planned including a visit from the Mobile Ontario Planetarium on Friday, March 9. See page 18 for more details about this program and other great March Break activities happening at Oshawa Public Libraries.
New for this spring, we will be partnering with Durham College to offer a series of educational programs including Financial Literacy, Computer Essentials, Safe Food Handling Certification, and Smart Serve Certification. These courses are 100% free, thanks to funding from the Ontario Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development, and a great way to update your job skills. Sign-up early to avoid disappointment as spaces are limited!
Last but not least, our annual How-To in 10 Festival is back on Saturday, April 21 where you can learn how to do a variety of cool and practical things in just 10 minutes.

See you at the Library!
