To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:
Whereas libraries perform a vital function storing and sharing information in our communities and are integral to healthy, strong communities;
Whereas the Ontario Library Service - North and the Southern Ontario Library Services programs ensure that smaller libraries in rural communities have equal access to all of Ontario's library collections;
And whereas libraries are particularly important spaces for people who face geographic and socio-economic barriers to accessing information and technology
We the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to: reverse the budget cuts to our Libraries and reinstate the necessary funding to keep our libraries strong.
