On September 30, Burnaby Public Library will observe National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. We will be joining Burnaby City Hall in closing our locations on that day.
We acknowledge and reflect upon the legacy and ongoing trauma caused by residential schools and the systems that enabled their abuse. We encourage you to honour this day through personal reflection and taking opportunities to listen to and support Indigenous peoples and organizations.
Integrating the principles of Truth and Reconciliation into our work is a strategic priority and part of an ongoing process. We would like to thank the Burnaby Public Library Indigenous Initiatives Working Group and Indigenous partnerships for their guidance as we continue this work.
