Just over 100 people showed up in support of Toronto Public Library Workers on strike last Sunday. Signs saying “Libraries Work Because We Do” were seen all over bodies in front of the Toronto Reference Library. Slogans were yelled on a mic, speeches were given, and people read from their favorite Canadian book.
I had the pleasure of talking with three booklovers and patrons of the Toronto Public Library as well as a worker, Kristen, who shared concerns that I had not known about: health, safety, and service.
Listen to what Kristen has to say and support Toronto Public Library workers on strike!
