Word on the Street was a very successful day for the Toronto Public Library Workers Union. We had many supporters visit our booth - and there was much support for our campaign against staffless libraries.
It was wonderful to engage directly with the public - who share not only their support for public libraries but for the people who deliver the service. Our speaker's corner video booth attracted many visitors - and many participated in our group reading of the Staffless Library poem. Our free kite giveaways for children was a big hit - and we saw the kites soaring around the event! Thank you to all our volunteers and to the WOTS organizers who helped make this sunny day such a great event. See you next year!
