Reader's Thoughts on OSNGUPL-MPL Standoff – Sack the Board


An un-elected board has set back Meaford relations with Sydenham by this library services decision. Not sure why anyone would think a village library can replace the sophistication of OSNGUPL.

Sack the board and get some real problem solvers in there.

What nonsense.

Local Library Service Imperative


The following letter has been sent to our members of council:

Dear Mayor and Council,

I am writing about your recent decision to discontinue Owen Sound Library services for residents of the former Sydenham Township. This is a devastating injury in addition to the forced amalgamation. The limited library services Meaford provides at the Sydenham Depot are no substitute for access to a bona fide local library. Given our proximity to Owen Sound, the discontinuation of OS Library services is not only inconvenient, but also flies in the face of our efforts to reduce the vehicular traffic and use of fossil fuels.

The Library is Much More Than a Place to Get Books


I was born in Leith. My mother was a teacher. Reading has been an important part of my life since I was young.

I've been an active user of the "library" as I call it (now the Owen Sound and North Grey Union Public Library) since I was a youngster. I grew up in Leith and now live in Annan - I still actively use the library - it is part of my life - I often see some neighbours and/or friends when I'm at the library. I have observed children learning to read. I have also utilized the Adult Learning Centre when teaching an adult to read. I know and appreciate how books and information can positively impact a person's life!
