Read for Reconciliation

2017 is Canada’s 150th anniversary, but is also a year of reconciliation. In recognition of the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, Terrace Public Library has curated a list of excellent titles to raise awareness, stimulate discussion, and facilitate a culture of learning. This is also a great opportunity to highlight the work of Indigenous authors!
