Petawawa council supports more library funding

Council is urging the Province of Ontario to reinstate adequate and appropriate funding for local libraries, increasing each year going forward in line with the consumer price index. The Ontario Public Library Association (OPLA) is asking the province to return library funding to pre-1996 levels. That year, the province allocated $64 million per year, apportioned by population. Then they cut the funding down to $32 million.

Orillia 180409 – Library Funding Abram

City joins chorus calling for more provincial library funding

It’s time for the province to turn the page on library funding. At least, that’s the consensus from the Ontario Library Association (OLA) and the Federation of Ontario Public Libraries (FOPL), who are asking for more provincial funding of libraries. They have sent letters to most municipalities – including Orillia – looking for support. On Monday night, council committee voted to support the pitch to the province.
