Ontario cuts funding for Toronto Public Library

“The Ontario government is cutting $1.4 million in funding to the Toronto Public Library over this year and next, which will trigger service cuts for library users, the city librarian is warning. In an email obtained by the Star, Vickery Bowles warns city manager Peter Wallace of “some concerning news I received last Friday from Kevin Finnerty,” the assistant deputy minister for culture at the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport. The ministry has cut TPL’s provincial funding by 20 per cent — “funding that has been received annually for almost the past 20 years, although flat-lined” in recent years, Bowles wrote late Monday afternoon.” (via Toronto Star)
