LSP Week Event at Flemingdon Park

Last year’s Library Settlement Partnerships (LSP) Week was a memorable one with over 1,250 people attending 13 special events at Toronto Public Library’s LSP branches. This year’s LSP Week, taking place from October 11th – 22nd, promises to be just as engaging! This year marks the eighth anniversary of LSP and the theme is “Dance from Around the World”, which celebrates newcomers’ contribution to dance in Canada. LSP Week is celebrated annually in October and coincides with Canadian Citizenship Week and Ontario Public Library Week. The library, along with seven local settlement agencies, will celebrate by offering a variety of fun, free programs featuring multicultural dance performances, visits by citizenship judges, open houses, information booths and much more!  We look forward to seeing you there!
