CUPE Local 25-01 celebrates Library Week in Cobourg with buttons, postcards

COBOURG, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 21, 2015) - October 19-26 is Library Week in Ontario, and library workers for the Cobourg Public library, members of Local 25-01 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE 25-01), marked the occasion with postcards, buttons and some sweet treats.

"We wanted to take the opportunity to highlight the contribution libraries and library workers make to communities while celebrating Library Week," said Els Buchanan, vice-president of CUPE Local 25-01.

"Libraries are more than just buildings with books in them. They are places that have a profoundly positive impact on the communities where they stand. They are meeting places, community hubs, and spaces that enhance residents' quality of life," he added.

The celebration and information session outside the Cobourg Public Library branch coincided with National Public Library Month and Ontario Public Library Week. The event was organized by CUPE 25-01 and CUPE Ontario's Library Workers' Committee.

The public events are an opportunity for library workers to connect with the people they serve, as well as others, while highlighting the importance of libraries in the community.
