The Blue Mountains Public Library is celebrating all things Canadian to mark our country's 150th anniversary. The theme for May is Clay the Canadian Way. Blue Mountain Pottery is not the only pottery that our area is known for; discover the rich heritage of pottery making at the library. The Blue Mountains Public Library's two branches, the Craigleith Heritage Depot and the L.E. Shore Memorial Library, are running programmes and exhibits all month.
The Craigleith Heritage Depot will be exhibiting its collection of Blue Mountain Pottery along with a small exhibit called Earthenware Everywhere. This exhibit includes thousands of years of pottery making and use from indigenous pieces to everyday household items.
