A Day In the Life of Oakville: Come make history with us!

Oakville Public Library is creating a Day in the Life of Oakville digital photo exhibit and we need your help; we want to see Oakville from your perspective. We’ll be collecting photos taken on Tuesday, July 28th, 2015 and preserving them in a digital exhibit for future generations. Using your smartphone or digital camera, take a snapshot of a moment during your day on July 28th and help us build a community archive. This is your chance to contribute to Oakville heritage and show us Oakville the way YOU see it!

If you live in Oakville, work in Oakville, or if you’re visiting Oakville on July 28th, we’d love to see your snapshots. Try to avoid taking photos that feature the identity of a specific individual, and if you do, he or she must fill out our photo consent form here

To submit your photo, visit our site between July 28th and August 5th.

If you have any questions, please contact Elise C. Cole at or at 905-815-2042 ext. 5037.
