CULC/CBUC Unanimously supports motion recognizing Schrader

In a moment of appreciation the CULC/CBUC members gathered in Calgary on October 1 and passed the following motion:

MOTION

WHEREAS Alvin Schrader has spent a career in librarianship inspiring, educating and supporting and defending the issues surrounding Intellectual Freedom for Canadians and the role that the library plays in that ecosystem.

GIVEN THAT contribution it is imperative to recognize Alvin’s lifetime contribution. CULC/CBUC recognizes this contribution and thanks him for his leadership and support.

Moved by Maureen Sawa, Greater Victoria Public Library
Seconded by Vickery Bowles, Toronto Public Library

UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED

If you take a book out of a Canadian library, the author gets a payment every year if they’ve registered through the Public Lending Right Program. I got my cheque today! Big thanks to all you great library users. Authors, here’s the link to register: https://publiclendingright.ca
