Support the Toronto Public Library

I can’t bear to talk muncipal politics here, because it absolutely breaks my heart. Must urge anyone who hasn’t yet, however, to sign the petition supporting Toronto’s incredible public library system. I’ve never been shy about my love for Toronto’s libaries, mostly because they saved my life once, and I think that it’s tragic that some of our fellow citizens don’t know the value of the treasure in our midst. If you do know the value, however, I urge you to make your voice heard. (And then our voices will be dismissed because we’re a weird fringe special interest group of librarian patrons who, with our library cards, have a conflict of interest anyway, and no right to impinge our beliefs on the taxpaying majority.

  1. Well said, Kerry! Reminds me that although I’ve Facebooked and tweeted about this multiple times, I should blog about it, too. Will do so tomorrow. Love your post about the Spadina Road Library, too! Just lovely.

    I’ll have a look at that petition.
    When I visited Toronto, I was very impressed by the number of branches the libary has in Toronto and even more impressed by the main branch: it’s amazing!

    I’m glad to say I was able to send the template letter even though I am not a Canadian resident.

    Kerry – this breaks my heart too! I can’t imagine our great city without the special treasures, like the libraries, that make it so great! Thank you for blogging about it and spreading the word.
