Join the Thunder Bay Public Library's Aboriginal Liaison Intern and the Aboriginal Advisory Group (AAG) members twice a month to discuss new and creative ways TBPL can better serve and meet the needs of the Aboriginal community in Thunder Bay. 

The next AAG meetings will be held at:


February 8 - 6-8 pm @ Waverley Hub North
