Toronto Public Library Workers Union

The Toronto Public Library Workers celebrated Ontario Public Library Week at the Scarborough Civic Center Library - TPL's 100th branch.  We had postcards, buttons, eyeglass cleaners, and mini-colouring books designed by Daniel Rotsztain, Toronto artist and urban geographer depicting Toronto's Carnegie libraries.
