From the Ontario Provincial Government:
Ontario is investing $1.6 million to support 10 projects in public libraries across the province that will improve services for Ontarians.
Michael Coteau, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport, made the announcement today at the Milton Public Library, which is receiving a grant of $169,000 over two years. The library will partner with the Town of Milton, Conservation Halton and Halton Culture Services to create a virtual hub that uses gaming and social media applications to engage the public and promote programs and services.
The investments are part of the Ontario Libraries Capacity Fund, a $10 million program to help public libraries support strong, vibrant communities and better meet the changing needs of Ontarians. The fund supports new projects that can be adapted to suit the needs of other communities and have the potential for a positive impact on public libraries across the province and the people they serve.
