Posted on

save-our-libraries-fb-profile-pic-smallThe Atlantic Provinces Library Association (APLA) is showing support for our province’s libraries at a Newfoundland and Labrador Libraries Love-in during their Annual Conference being held in Halifax, NS. The rally will be held on Tuesday, May 31 at 5:00 pm in the Lunenberg Room at the Westin Nova Scotian.

The NL Provincial government’s controversial decision to implement a 10% tax on books and to close over half of the province’s public libraries has been met with criticism from library associations, media, authors and Canadians everywhere.

APLA writes “If there has ever been a time for concerted and unrelenting advocacy, surely this is it? We will share news of advocacy initiatives and actions thus far (by NLLA, the Newfoundland & Labrador Writers Federation, local library boards, etc.), take stock of APLA’s own contributions, and brainstorm ideas for further action. All that while CELEBRATING NL public libraries and their ongoing positive impact in their communities. Please join us. Many hands make light work!”

A big thanks to APLA for their support!
