A message from CUPE BC’s President, Paul Faoro
Almost 1,000 British Columbians have sent messages to community leaders expressing their support for reopening our vital public libraries. We need your help to build on this momentum for CUPE BC’s betterlibraries.ca campaign.
Across the province, from large centres like Metro Vancouver to small communities like Grand Forks, several public libraries have successful adapted their programs and services to safely reopen. Others have accelerated plans to reopen sooner than previously expected, such as five branches of the Vancouver Public Library.
These reopenings show that public libraries can adapt and innovate to serve the public who depend on them, and shows that our engagement with local government is making a difference.
We know you share CUPE’s passionate support for public libraries, and we know many in your community feel the same.
If you haven’t already, please visit betterlibraries.ca and send your own messages of support.
If you already have sent a message, please help spread the word by sharing this campaign with your friends, family and neighbours.
Brothers, sisters and friends, our work to reopen libraries is supporting one of our most important public services. Thank you so much for your continued support.
President – CUPE BC
