One of our recent acquisitions, a piece of scouting gear from the 1950s! Officially, the Canadian General Council of the Boy Scouts was incorporated by an Act of Parliament on June 12, 1914, which means that Boy Scouts have been in Canada for over 100 years!

Happy Lumberjack Day! Lumberjacks are so integral to the histories of Coquitlam, British Columbia and Canada, and so today we are honouring this noble profession! This statue is of a man creating veneer, given to a long-term employee by the Canadian Wood Council. Note the sash, which is a testament to the French-Canadian design of the carving!

We are pleased to announce our next exhibit!
The early part of the 20th century was a period of contradiction, rapid technological change and female emancipation. Following the Great War, a new female silhouette emerged, with an emphasis on an androgynous, boyish figure crowned by short bobbed hair. Why did women throw their corsets out the window? What caused waistlines to drop and hemlines to rise? Join Coquitlam Heritage at Mackin House, fashion historian Ivan Sayers and other community partners in this exploration of fashions of the roaring twenties!

It's National Hunting, Trapping and Fishing Heritage Day, which recognizes the importance of hunting, trapping, and fishing to Canada’s history. This is Sir John, and you can find him in our Children’s Room! These soft, cuddly toys actually originated due to a hunting trip! In November of 1902, President Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt was on a hunting trip in Mississippi. When he failed to make a kill, his hosts caught and presented a tethered bear to him as a sitting target.

President Roosevelt refused to shoot, uttering the words "Spare the bear! I will not shoot a tethered animal." Clifford Berryman immortalized the incident in The Washington Post in a cartoon.

During the same month, a pair of Brooklyn New York shopkeepers named Morris and Rose Michtom made a toy bear named "Teddy's Bear" and displayed it in their window with a copy of the cartoon. The rest, as they say, is history!

Visit our display, Maillardville: A Train Ride Home, from September 1 to 30, 2017 at @coqlibrary Poirier Branch! Read on for more information:

Maillardville, a francophone community nestled just above the Fraser River, has long been a centre of culture, industry and history in Coquitlam. The first wave of French-Canadian migrants arrived at the train station on September 28th, 1909. A labour shortage at Fraser Mills combined with mounting anti-immigrant rhetoric in Canada during this time encouraged their migration into the community, forever changing the Coquitlam landscape. Join us as we explore artifacts and stories from one francophone family who came with the second wave of migrants in May 1910. Theirs, like many, is the story of coming home.
