Here’s to Libraries, Number Seven!

CanadaParliamentLibraryThis week’s tribute takes us to the Canadian Library of Parliament (in Ottawa).

Their vision: “To be Parliament’s preferred and trusted source of information and knowledge.”

Their mission: “The Library of Parliament contributes to Canadian parliamentary democracy by creating, managing and delivering authoritative, reliable and relevant information and knowledge for Parliament.

Their strategic outcome: “An informed and accessible Parliament.”

“A public library is the most enduring of memorials, the trustiest monument for the preservation of an event or a name or an affection; for it, and it only, is respected by wars and revolutions, and survives them.”  (Mark Twain).
