Calgary’s silver-haired fox also has a silver tongue! What a great interview! He has done the Canadian library community proud with his comments that portray libraries today as the modern, accessible, and inclusive instituions they are – Thank you!

Awesome interview. Gerry did an excellent job of explaining to the public what experiences they can have in a public library. It makes me proud to be part of the library community.

It's #WorldBookDay and we should be celebrating. Instead we are fighting on behalf of 1 in 10 Canadians with print disabilities. Please RT to help us convince @CQualtro and @cafreeland not to cut $4 million in funding for #accessible books 3 million Canadians rely on. #cdnpoli

The Government of Canada is cutting funding for accessible book production in Canada by $1 million each year until it is fully eliminated in 2015, resulting in fewer books, less choice, less service for our users. Help us stop the cuts! #cdnpoli #AccessibleBooksMatter #a11y
