Caledon Public Library

Love Your Library Celebration

This October, Caledon Public Library will be celebrating our 20th annual Love Your Library month and we invite the community to a full day of celebrations. This important milestone takes place during Ontario Culture Days and the Headwaters Arts Festival and will include the launch of the library's newest initiative Artful Caledon featuring art exhibits, demonstrations, and music by local artists of all ages and the unveiling of a virtual platform to promote their work. 

Join us as we honour Caledon’s unique art, culture and heritage.
