Ontario is supporting lifelong learning and literacy in Brampton West. The province is investing in Brampton Public Library Board to help build its collection and programs to strengthen community services.
Providing free, reliable and consistent access to information supports literacy, skills development, research and many other learning needs of Ontarians and helps to build Ontario’s knowledge economy.
Helping Ontarians develop the skills they need to succeed is part of the province’s Open Ontario Plan to help the economy in turning the corner and create more jobs for Ontarians.
“The Brampton Public Library Board is a vital part of our community,” said MPP Vic Dhillon. “This provincial support will mean that residents in Brampton West will have more access to information and resources that will foster knowledge and new ideas.”
Ontario is home to 320 public library systems, including large, small, rural, remote, Franco-phone and First Nations libraries, with over 1,100 locations.
