Yes, it is Canada Day! A perfect time to learn more about our neighbors to the north and their many great accomplishments.
A good place to start in your Canadian appreciation journey is by learning a little bit about their history. We have lots of books on the history of the nation, individual provinces and territories, first nations, and the many peoples that make up Canada today.
On the cultural front, Canada is no bit player. From artists, to authors, to the many productions of ‘Hollywood north,’ Canadian contributions are many and varied. And, of course, don’t forget the hockey and, yes, cuisine.
While, understandably but sadly, the border between the US and Canada is closed for travelers at this time, that just gives you more time to research your next trip. We have many travel books on all regions of Canada for you to explore.
For many of us in Washington, Canada means beautiful British Columbia. Appropriately, Everett Public Library has many books on that great province.
So, take a little time today to celebrate Canada and get to know our fellow North Americans a little better.
