Sunday afternoons are usually reserved for quite lunches, laundry and relaxing in track pants. But when libraries are under fire, I flung on my jeans, grabbed a Canadian book and made my way to the Toronto Reference Library to join my fellow librarians in solidarity. Thank you to Black Coffee Poet for this post!

Black Coffee Poet

A “Read In” was held yesterday afternoon in front of the Toronto Reference Library.  About 100 people attended to support library workers on strike.

Most folks had a book by their favorite Canadian author in hand.  I brought Rising With A Distant Dawn by one of my favorite Canadian poets: David Groulx.  People got on the mic to share words of solidarity and to read from their favorite book.

I had the privilege of talking with three cool readers, one being Toronto poet Whitney French, who love books and libraries just as much as I do.  One woman made an amazing sign:
