Black History Month @ BWGPL

Carlos Ferguson Exhibition

The black culture has evolved musically, socially and politically in the last two decades in Canada. Carlos Ferguson’s photography has captured some of the faces of that evolution in Ontario.

This photo documentary work, part of the AfroCanadaViews which interviewed and documented the views of African Canadians (whose works have positively impacted Canadian society) has added another voice to that definition.

Engaging both the traditional photography and digital imaging as tolls, he has captured part of the spirit of an evolving, vibrant black culture in Ontario.

New E-Resources page

You might notice a few changes to our website! We are always trying to improve service, and this change is an extension of that effort.

You will notice that the “Research” tab on the navigation menu has been replaced with “E-Resources.” All of our electronic resources are now housed on this one page, including ebooks, eaudiobooks, digital magazines, and all of our databases and electronic platforms. You can hover your cursor over the “E-Resources” menu to see some quick-link options, or click on the E-Resources tab itself to find the full menu. If you notice an E-Resource is no longer available under the ‘”Books and Media” tab, you will now find them exclusively on the E-Resources page.

New E-Resources Tab

Everything is organized into subcategories; click on one of the categories for a menu with all the related resources.

We appreciate that it might take time for folks to adjust to this change, but it is our hope that you will find it to be an improvement.

If you are having trouble finding a resource, please don’t hesitate to contact us to seek assistance.
