October is Canadian Library Month, a time to reflect on the important role libraries play in the lives of all Canadians.
 
Libraries are more than buildings and books. Library workers bring your library to life and provide important services in your community. 

Yet libraries continue to be affected by staffing cuts, health and safety concerns and precarious work.

To respond to these challenges, Local 500 is inviting all library workers to participate in CUPE's visibility campaign for the month of October.
 
You can click here to download CUPE's "We Bring Your Library to Life" poster.  Share it with colleagues, print it in colour, have your photo taken with the poster, and share on Facebook and Twitter. Accompany your photo with a message about the importance of libraries and the workers who bring them to life.

Don't forget to tag Local 500 and use the hashtags #CanadianLibraryMonth and #CUPE500.
