Hurrah KPL!


 “Kitchener
library opens shelves to region’s readers” is a headline I’ve wanted to see since
I moved to Kitchener
about 17 years ago.  I believe in one
library card for all of Ontario
and our public libraries pooling their resources province-wide.  Yes richer communities should be aiding their
less fortunate neighbours; we are our brothers’ keepers. Working together and
pooling resources, all the libraries of Ontario
can better serve the citizens of Ontario and
make Ontario the knowledge capita of Canada. The libraries
of Waterloo Region opening up all their services to all the residents of the
Region is one small step in this direction. 
The next step is Greg Hayton’s vision of “a broad-based southern Ontario initiative in
which a single library card could be used in a host of municipalities. “  Congratulations KPL! What a wonderful
Christmas present to the people of Waterloo Region.  Merry Christmas to all!

About thebows99krug

Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Pooka, a small but fierce gray tabby. I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.
