Across the province libraries are hosting special events and open houses.

It’s all part of Ontario Public Library Week which will see libraries across the Northeast partaking in the week’s activities.

Residents are invited to meet library staff, see some of the services and resources available and check out some of the special events.

Locations on 4th Avenue in Cochrane, at the civic centre in Kapuskasing and on the corner of George and 8th in Hearst will be opening their doors this week for the event.

This comes as the Cochrane Library has been nominated for a special award for one of its after school programs.
