Find a Wealth of Resources at the Library

In case you weren’t aware, October is Autism Awareness Month, Breast Cancer Awareness month and Canadian Library Month to name a few. If you haven’t tried our great digital content on these subjects, please do! Download our Kanopy app and find a whole host of great feature films and documentaries on Autism. Look for, Normal People Scare Me Too, a four star documentary created with a film crew comprised of 75% autistic individuals, with music, art and animation created and performed by 65% autistic musicians/composers/artists. In our Hoopla app, you can find Breast Cancer Journey: the essential guide to treatment and recovery by Ruth O’Regan, MD. Breast Cancer Journey highlights all the latest medical developments from diagnosis through treatment and recovery as well as detailed questions to ask a medical team as someone begins their journey. All you need is your computer/tablet/iPad/cellphone and library card and PIN to take advantage of some of these great resources. But what about Canadian Library Month? Personally, I think every month should be Library month, but I’m slightly biased that way. At Niagara Falls Public Library we’ve got a whole host of activities during the month of October to especially celebrate the month. Join us at the Victoria Avenue Library on Friday, October 25, 2 p.m. as the Niagara Symphony Orchestra String Quartet takes us on a journey of music throughout the ages. The music continues on Saturday, October 26 at 1:30 p.m. as we welcome once again, Luis Gonzalez as he performs one of his three fall piano concerts. Luis’ career has encompassed international competitions and performance in France, USA, Germany, Poland, Russia, Mexico and Canada.

Who doesn’t love a sweet treat?!  Friday, October 25, 1 p.m. each of our four library locations will feature treats and refreshments to help celebrate all that is Library. Join us and check out some of the great programs and services we have to offer. Why not take a moment to get yourself a Library card and find out why your Library is a wealth of resources.

At Niagara Falls Public Library we will be doing our part in helping gather non-perishable food items for our local food bank - Project Share. Each of our four Library locations will have the familiar red food bins and will embark on a Food for Fines program during the week of October 20 - 26.  If you have fines, why not bring in a non-perishable food item and have up to $10 in fines waived from your account - just like that! Fines or no fines, we will be delighted to accept any food donations during this week.

Carrie Bosco is the Customer Service Librarian.

It seems hard to imagine that today, there are approximately 14,000 hotel and motel rooms available for visitors in the city of Niagara Falls. Because of our famous location, the city's hotel industry has a long and intriguing history. One such hotel that might not be as widely known as its more famous neighbours is the Hotel Lafayette.

For the most part, we have been enjoying some pleasant weather this month in Niagara Falls. Of course, this has not always been the case. Ninety-nine years ago, it was an entirely different story.

Honeymoons and the City of Niagara Falls have gone hand in hand for a very long time, with the first documented Niagara Falls honeymoon occurring in June of 1801. Theodosia Burr (the American vice president’s daughter) and her husband Joseph Alston visited the city on a delayed honeymoon that even included a visit with the famous Mohawk Chief Joseph Brant.
