PUBLIC LIBRARIES - LITERACY DEVELOPMENTS
At the Ontario Library Association (OLA) Conference in London on October 28, a workshop entitled 'How Literate Are You About Literacy:' was presented. The organizers were the Ontario Library Literacy Committee and the workshop was presented in two parts: "Illiteracy in Ontario", and "Library Leadership and Literacy". The workshop was well attended and delegates heard presentations from people working in the literacy field in London, Kingston, Toronto and Lindsay. A library literacy kit was distributed.
A President's Advisory Group on Literacy has been formed to advise the President of the Canadian Library Association on literacy and libraries.
