    ‘Caledon Public Library (CPL) has been awarded the 2016 Angus Mowat Award of Excellence from the Ontario Library Association. The award was given in recognition of the library’s Click Create Celebrate initiative — an annual contest encouraging submissions of short stories, poetry, short films and photography from all age groups. It culminates in an event celebrating the talent and creativity of all participants, and the unveiling of a published compilation of all winning entries.

    “CPL recognizes the inherent value of building a culture of creativity, and our Click Create Celebrate initiative offers the tools to create and cultivate, rather than simply consume the works of others,” said Lipp. “Click Create Celebrate provides a forum to recognize and highlight the talent of local authors, writers, photographers and filmmakers in our own community.”

    The library would also like to acknowledge the financial support of Friends of Caledon Public Library who make this initiative possible.’
