Dear APLA Members:

This information on Bill C-321 comes from the most recent CLA Digest.  I am sharing it as this issue is most critical for all libraries and according to MP Merv Tweed, the bill has a good chance to be passed.  Please see below for more information on how you can help.  Time is of the essence!

"Library Book Rate Bill Needs Your Support!
Bill C-321, MP Merv Tweed’s private members bill in support of the Library Book Rate, is scheduled for second reading in the House on 23 April.

MPs will be in their ridings from 9-20 April, so this is a great opportunity for you to make contact and ensure your MP’s commitment to this bill.

The CLA Library Book Rate Member Toolkit provides you with all the information you need to hold a meeting or send a letter to your Member of Parliament.
