Libraries support free access to information like no other organization…

This great quote is from BCLA President Chris Kevlahan in this Vancouver Sun article on the impact of the federal government cutting the Community Access Program. The single computer in the Alert Bay public library was used more than a thousand times last year, and had received less than a thousand dollars in funding. It is small communities like this that will be hurt the most by these cuts.
