CULC/CBUC Supports Freedom to Read Week

This year the Canadian Urban Libraries Council / Conseil des Bibliothèques Urbaines du Canada (CULC/CBUC) made a special contribution “in honour of the great careers and contributions of Bill Ptacek (Calgary), Rebecca Raven (Brampton), Louise Procter Maio (Richmond Hill), Patricia Enright (Kingston) and Susannah Hubbard Krimmer (London). Great champions of intellectual freedom.”

Freedom to Read Week is February 23–29 2020.

We want to thank everyone who has raised this issue with their communities and their MPs. @Cqualtro has championed disability rights in the past and we're hoping she will help #RestoreAccesibleBookFunding now https:/ww.cbc.ca/news/politics/accessible-reading-funding-cut-1.5938122

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
