It’s hard to believe that it is already May! This month Library Services encourages you to take time for yourself, to be gentle and kind to yourself. If you have any questions on the content please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
This year, St. Joe’s celebrates a century of exemplary care in the west end of Toronto! The St. Joe’s 100th Anniversary Archives Working Group has been meeting since last year to find fun and innovative ways to incorporate the Health Centre’s rich history into its centenary celebrations.
Those initiatives include:
An updated timeline of St. Joe’s milestones and medical “firsts”.
A digital photo book featuring familiar and never-before-seen images from our vault of historical documents.
Bi-weekly Throwback Thursday posts on the Library’s Twitter feed highlighting fun facts and archival photos.
Archival display cases located near the cafeteria exhibiting antique medical devices, nursing school memorabilia, and many other historical artefacts.
Memory Walk: A “memory walk” in the hallway between the cafeteria and the Our Lady of Mercy wing will present a series of posters. With two posters for each decade – one tracing the building development of St. Joe’s and one presenting a personal interest story – we hope viewers will round out their knowledge and appreciation of some of our many accomplishments.
COMING SOON: A virtual version of the “memory walk” will be available soon in the format of an interactive map.
You’ll be able to click each step of the way down the walk for more information! Check back soon!

As we find ourselves spending more time at home, the need to engage with the world outside our walls becomes increasingly important. Here are some of the ways the team of Library Services are celebrating Black History Month (or Black Futures Month) virtually and remotely.
Join Wikipedia and add articles about the African-Canadians who inspire you most.
Our Library catalogue
Black History Month coincides not only with new stay at home orders, but also the migration of the University of Toronto Libraries and our library catalogue to a brand new platform. So while we are ironing out the kinks with our new library catalogue (which we’re excited to share with you, you’ll love it), we hope you enjoy and take advantage of the outside resources that highlight some of the ways our staff is celebrating Black history this February.
