Burlington Public Library hosts national launch of LAC’s Lest We Forget

It was a proud moment in Burlington today. BPL hosted, as a pilot library, a workshop for 30 students from Nelson High School (Halton District School Board), using WWI and WWII military records that are part of the National Library and Archives. The students were greeted by National Librarian and Archivist Daniel J. Caron and Assistant Deputy Minister of Resource Discovery Jean-Stephen Piche. The workshop is part of a pilot program between LAC-BAC and CULC/CBUC and the Canadian War Museum. Burlington PL CEO Maureen Barry and her staff did a brilliant job showcasing the library and the program.
