Federation of Ontario Public Libraries

Good afternoon all,

Copy of slides: OLA and FOPL – 2020 Pre-Budget – Webinar

Thank you to everyone who was able to join the call today. As discussed, I wanted to share with you a few key resources discussed on the call.

If you have not already done so, please see OLA and FOPL’s pre-budget submission .

For those who have not yet share the pre-budget submission with your MPP, we’d highly recommend reaching out to share this with them as soon as practical. FOPL has posted some helpful resources for engaging your MPP. Given the time constraints, a phone call or an email would be a very effective mode of outreach. Please do make sure to let us know about your meetings as they take place.
