Canada Celebrates Queen's Diamond Jubilee

Today marks the 60th anniversary of the Queen's ascension to the British throne, and around the country, Canadians are celebrating. According to the Canadian Press, there's been a marked renewal of enthusiasm and support for the monarchy here in Canada. And after Will and Kate's tour of the country last year, we have developed an "appetite for months of festivities honouring one of the longest reigns in the institution's history."

All over the country, we'll celebrate with a myriad of events scheduled throughout the year. Additionally, about 60,000 Canadians will receive a very special honourthe Diamond Jubilee medal, awarded for work in community service. Today the first 60 Canadians, including freestyle skier Alexandre Bilodeau, Terry Fox's brother Darrell, and entrepreneur Brett Wilson, received their medals.

I’ve kicked off the Jubilee by listening to Elizabeth the Queen on audiobook. I’ve only just started, but so far, I find it quite captivating. How are you and your library celebrating?
