Library Day at Queen's Park
Every two years, the Ontario Library Association (OLA) and the Federation of Ontario Public Libraries (FOPL), organize Library Day at Queen’s Park.
Library Day is an opportunity for Ontario’s library leaders to meet with Ministers, MPPs and Policy makers to use a shared voice advocate on behalf of Ontario’s Libraries.
On November 23rd, 2017, we were thrilled to meet with a total of 19 MPPs, Ministers and Policy Advisors. Our messaging focused on the role that public and school libraries play as resources for empowering positive change in education, poverty reduction and economic development. We also highlighted the need for sustainable, predictable, and flexible funding to play for and deliver real impacts in communities.
Our conversations and engagement also took place online, using the hashtag #ILoveONLibraries (see our Twitter story here! )
