Since 2000, First Nation Public Libraries have used one week of the year to raise awareness of their resources, services, programs and activities. In First Nation communities, First Nations Public Library Week is not only an opportunity to promote public library services, but it also celebrates cultural uniqueness through creative library programming. 

As a multi-level, multi-purpose program that encourages all Ontario libraries to join in its celebration, First Nations Public Library Week is an event that can be enjoyed by library patrons and community members across the province. 

As of 2018, First Nations Public Library Week is celebrated the first week of October to coincide with Canadian Library Month. 

Planning for 2019 FNPLW has begun!
