Good afternoon

I am pleased to be here to take part in today’s grant announcement.

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all our honoured guests joining us today – MP Leona Alleslev, MPP Chris Ballard, members of our Council, CAO Doug Nadorozny and Aurora Public Library’s CEO Jill Foster. 

I am pleased to hear today’s funding announcement about one of Aurora’s most important resources, the Aurora Public Library. 

The library is an integral community resource that helps inspire imagination and foster education. 

Whether you are accessing the countless books or electronic resources to gain a higher level of knowledge or attending an information session about a range of topics, the library is a communal place that brings diverse backgrounds, cultures and people together. 

Libraries play a key role in building strong communities and increasing engagement amongst residents. 

Thank you to MP Alleslev for presenting this grant to the library. On behalf of Aurora Town Council, we appreciate all the support  from the Government of Canada in improving the Library and helping to enhance its role in our community.!
