The Initiative

The Canadian Urban Libraries Council / Conseil des Bibliothèques Urbaines du Canada (CULC/CBUC) has created an opportunity for all public libraries to participate in a Canada-wide digital reading program. The initiative is similar to a “one book, one city” initiative, but on a national scale and in digital format.

Les petites presses canadiennes fournissent du contenu électronique aux bibliothèques à une fraction du coût des grandes maisons d'édition. Consultez leurs catalogues de titres, vous vous verrez, vous, vos voisins et les personnes que vous devez rencontrer dans leurs histoires.
