Territory Acknowledgement

Territory Acknowledgement

We wish to acknowledge and honour the land upon which this library stands as the historic and Traditional Territory of the Anishinabek Nation. We recognize and thank The People of the Three Fires, known as Ojibway, Odawa, and Pottawatomie Nations. And further give thanks to the Chippewas of Saugeen, and the Chippewas of Nawash, known collectively as the Saugeen Ojibway Nation.

Learning about treaties & how they continue to shape the province today is an important part of reconciliation with Indigenous peoples. Read more about the history of treaties in The Saugeen Ojibway Nation at: https://www.saugeenojibwaynation.ca/resources

In recognition that municipal boundaries are an ongoing colonial construct that ignores First Nations traditional territories, First Nations people with a status card or band membership of a local First Nation, and who are living in the traditional Saugeen Ojibway Nation lands, including Treaty 45 1/2, will be entitled to free library membership. In the spirit of original treaties, the library shall share its resources with mutual respect. The Hanover Public Library will continue to provide books and materials by First Nations and Indigenous authors in its collection. 

These actions are a part of the Hanover Public Library’s mission as a welcoming and upbeat community hub that fosters lifelong learning.

Library’s Service Model Study

Library’s Service Model Study Presented to Hanover Council

As many of our library members are aware, the space of our facility designed in 1995 is struggling to keep up with the demands of our 2016 community. Hanover is one of the few municipalities in the region that is growing; and it serves as the hub for a large area around Hanover proper.  We do a great deal of educational programs and events now, as is expected of modern public libraries. These are vital community services, but they take space, and space is what we don’t have.

Therefore, in 2015 the Library Board chose consultants Allan Avis Architects and Beth Ross and Associates to perform a Service Model and Space Needs Study, which was presented to Hanover Council on Monday, Feb. 1 2016. The study evaluates how well our facility and our services are meeting the needs of the community. The study also includes architectural drawings for some suggestions for expansion.  Paper copies of the report are available in the library, please ask staff for assistance.
