OLA Hopes NL Government will reconsider Book Tax and Public Library Cuts

Posted on

OLAThe Ontario Library Association (OLA), the largest library association in Canada, has also written a letter to Dale Kirby, Newfoundland and Labrador’s Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development, urging the Government to reconsider the implementation of a provincial book tax and cuts to public libraries in the province. OLA provides examples of ways that “investing in public libraries has proven to yield a measurable, positive return that has a significant cultural and economic impact on communities.” The full letter to Minister Kirby can be read here.

  1. I live in Ontario & am very opposed to the library cuts in Newfoundland. Where & to whom should I go to protest the cuts in my province? I’ve signed the petition but want to do more.
