On ne le dira jamais assez : la taille compte, mais pas trop. Et l’on parle bien de la taille de sa bibliothèque. Pour qui a décidé en 2017 de battre des records, en voici un qui s’annonce tout à fait réalisable : lire 100 livres sur l’ensemble de l’année. Cela exige un peu d’organisation et de volonté. Celle de laisser tomber les mauvais livres.

Since the last of Canada’s Indian residential schools closed in 1996, the nation has been attempting to shape a response to the legacy of abuse that the residential school system—which removed native children from their homes and families—inflicted on its Indigenous Peoples. Saskatoon Public Library (SPL), Saskatchewan, has become the first public library to incorporate a space permanently dedicated to truth and reconciliation. On November 21 SPL’s Frances Morrison Central Library opened the Read for Reconciliation reading area, which includes a full set of the reports compiled by the TRC over five years, plus a variety of books about Canada’s history of residential schools, as well as an extensive reading list on the history and legacy of residential schools in Canada on its homepage.

Today we’re highlighting books that do something inordinately difficult, and do it well. There are few things worse to read than preachy children’s books that thwap young readers over the heads with whatever message it is that they’re trying to impart. Picture books teach and inspire, but to do so they must be smart and subtle and, above all, well-written. All the more reason to highlight and celebrate those 2016 books that have done just that.

Digital circulation tops three million, putting Toronto in first place among library systems. Toronto is a city of readers, and digital library lending is on the rise.
