Using the Library
Our themes for 2023 reflect the CCRF priority of encouraging the participation of underrepresented groups, and take into consideration the unique challenges of rural and remote communities. For the first year, Tales & Trails will focus on sharing stories of diversity, inclusion and belonging based on a variety of themes. Middlesex County Library staff have carefully selected children’s picture books for each theme, wtih four different stories featured at a time. Each book will be showcased at two locations and will be available for viewing for four weeks. When possible, stories from the community will also be featured to correspond with the theme. Community supports and services will also be highlighted.
Tales & Trail sites have been divided into two sections. Each section will have a site that will feature one of the four storybooks. We hope you consider visiting muliple trails to enjoy. The first theme of 2023 will be Mental Health; stories will be available in all locations by the week of May 29.
