Friday, November 11th is Remembrance Day. Across the country people will pause and observe two minutes of silence to remember those who fought and lost their lives for Canada. 

To commemorate this day, Barrie Public Library has created two lists of books that examine the topic of war. 

For school aged readers:  

The second is a collection of Canadian fiction and nonfiction that describe the impact of war on human life for adult readers. 

The annual Remembrance Day Parade will return to downtown Barrie this year. The parade will start along Dunlop Street at Mulcaster and march to the Five Points intersection halting in front of the Cenotaph in Memorial Square for the ceremony. Two minutes of silence will be observed at 11 am followed by the ceremony and laying of wreaths. A Feu De Joie (blank gunfire consisting of a rifle salute) will take place.
