May is Asian Heritage Month in Canada! While Asian Heritage Month has been celebrated since the 1990s, the Government of Canada signed an official declaration in May 2002. This month continues to be a time to celebrate the contributions that Canadians of Asian origin have made, and continue to make, to the prosperity and growth of our country.

Toronto Public Library is joining the celebration by offering a variety of programs and events in May for all age groups:
