One Million New Books In Ontario School Libraries
Elementary students started the school year with more than one million new books in school libraries, and there are more on the way.
Last January, the government selected 72 Ontario-based vendors, and negotiated discounts up to 50 per cent for school boards. To date, this has saved boards about $3 million and allowed them to purchase 175,000 more books. More savings and additional books are expected during the school year.
