New Support for Hundreds of Libraries Across Ontario

Published on : Friday, October 13, 2017

Ontario logoOntario is kicking off Public Library Week with improvements to digital services at 307 libraries and library organizations across the province.

 

Eleanor McMahon, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport was at the Burlington Public Library today to recognize the valuable role that libraries play in Ontario communities and announce funding for the local library system.

 

The Burlington Public Library is receiving support from the Improving Library Digital Services fund to offer more resources for people in the community to use at its Ideaworks Studio, including a new 3D printer, digital embroidery machine and new digital media software. People will be able to enjoy these specialized technologies for their own interests and to help with projects and schoolwork.

 

Ontario is increasing access to technology, digital services and training opportunities at public libraries in towns, cities and Indigenous communities across the province. Funding is helping libraries offer more technology in their communities, such as wireless internet connections, new computers, and e-books, as well as classes on topics like social media and computer literacy.

 

Minister McMahon also announced the shortlist finalists for this year’s Ontario Public Library Service Awards, recognizing excellence in library services.

 

Investing in Ontario’s public libraries is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
