Library Month Giveaway
October 7, 2022
October is Canadian Library Month! It’s a chance for libraries to spread the word about what we do and offer…because it’s more than just books. Libraries promote cultural awareness, engage in the community, create partnerships, provide educational programs, support freedom of expression and much, much more.
We are also celebrating our library-loving community this fall with a three-part Library Month Giveaway Challenge. Throughout the month we’ll share three fun challenges on our Vancouver Island Regional Library + Fans Facebook page. Answer the questions in the challenges and you’ll be entered into a draw for the chance to win one of three fantastic prizes.
The draw will happen on October 27.
