Dividends: the Value of Public Libraries in Canada (1997)

The Library Action Committee of the Book and Periodical Council undertook a research project in July 1996 to review the importance of public libraries, to analyze the effects of reduced funding to public libraries on the economy and society at large, and to produce a discussion paper that outlined these themes and concerns. This document is intended to serve as a nation-wide reference tool for those advocating and planning for the continuation of strong library services, including library managers and staff, for library boards and town councils, for publishers and retailers and for provincial and national government officials. It outlines the many areas in which public libraries play a vital role in Canada, and also notes where reductions in library funding will be detrimental to suppliers, publishers, retailers, local businesses and governments, and thus to all Canadians.
