Stop the Cuts to Library Funding

Hello Friends, 

Recently the Doug Ford Conservative Government of Ontario has decided to cut the funding of the Southern Ontario Library Service by 50% this year. This service is instrumental in allowing small, rural or hard-pressed library systems to get their staff trained and Inter-Library Loans to their patrons. Without these funds, small libraries will face extreme challenges to fulfill their obligations to their constituents. 

Province slashes Ontario Library Service funding by 50%

This must be reversed.

The bottom line is these cuts are egregious, were made without consultation or thought for rural communities and will increase the hardships of the most vulnerable. Libraries are an essential service for many people, we deliver movies, books, entertainment, children's literacy services, ESL services, and MANY other important programs. 

Please support our petition to get people the help and services they need and reverse these exorbitant cuts that hurt everyone regardless of who they are.
