To celebrate Canada Day, the Mérida English Library will be serving up hot poutine on Friday morning from 10 to 12. 

Poutine is a dish from Quebec and is made of French fries and cheese curds topped with gravy. 

It is hard to overstate how big poutine is across Canada, with some going as far as calling it the country’s national dish.

Canada Day celebrates the anniversary of Canadian confederation which took place on July 1, 1867.

Ccelebrations take place across the country with large festivals and fireworks displays, as well as in various Canadian communities abroad.

Though Canada is today the second largest country on earth by land mass, at the time the fledgling nation was limited to the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia.

The following Saturday, the library will be hosting a “Monet & Mimosas event,” where attendees will paint, relax, and enjoy drinks. 

The library will also be observing American independence on the 4th of July with a get-together and hot dog sale from 6 to 8 p.m.

Tickets to all events are for sale in advance and can be purchased directly at the library or via MEL’s Facebook page.
