Honouring Indigenous perspectives


City Library is committed to reconciliation and decolonization. We do that in part through growing our collections and programming to help our community learn and reflect together. Listening, learning and following the lead of Indigenous communities are essential for building relationships of trust and respect. You can read more about our commitment in our 2022/23 refreshed strategic priorities.

Reconciliation begins with each and every one of us.
