Let us know why you love this book, and tag @local4948 or add #OurPublicLibrary to your post and you will be be automatically entered in a draw to win some fabulous prizes including:

  • 1st Prize: A new iPad
  • 2nd Prize: $100 Gift Card to Indigo/Chapters
    indigo gift card
  • 3rd – 5th Prizes: Library Worker Swag

Libraries and Library Workers from across the country are celebrating and raising awareness about the valuable role Our Public Libraries play in our communities.

I don’t need to tell you how much Torontonians love Our Public Library. But a new study by Social Planning Toronto has found city residents also need it, especially as we endure the pandemic.  According to the study, more than half (52%) or respondents say they urgently need access to Libraries and Library Services.

Rest assured, Library Workers will be there to deliver safe and professional services. If you can’t make it into a branch, Our Public Library offers a wide range of services online and over the phone.

Stay safe and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s on your bookshelf!

Yours sincerely,

Brandon Haynes
President, Toronto Public Library Workers Union, Local 4948

*Contest ends October 31st and the draw will take place Monday, November 2nd.
