Libraries in Crisis

This Spring has been a very difficult time for a number of libraries in Canada through natural disasters and other crisis. Various CULC members have been in touch and what is clear is that they are all at different stages of recovery. They all need support, and all need money the most. Please see the various links that have been established to provide this support. 

Fire and Total Destruction of Lac-Mégantic (QC)

Flooding in High River (AB)

Fire in Bella Bella (BC)

Flooding of Calgary Central Library

Flooding of Toronto Public Library – Richview Branch (Etobicoke)

CULC/CBUC encourages you to support.

⚠️ Safety is a top priority for Canadian public libraries. The CULC/CBUC Safety and Security Toolkit provides a menu of options to help manage and respond to security incidents more effectively. Visit to enhance your library's safety plan! 📚

Just released — OVERDUE: The Case for Canada’s Public Libraries is the product of three years of CUI’s engagement with Canada’s urban public libraries alongside @culc_cbuc.
