We must protect the public library | Q with Jian Ghomeshi | CBC Radio

In today's opening essay, Jian congratulates the three great Canadian library systems that made Heinrich Heine University's list of best libraries in the world -- Vancouver, Montreal (tied for number one) and Toronto (number five).

 

"That's three major Canadian libraries in the global top five," notes Jian, who argues that we would do well to protect the institutions that have evolved from book repositories to community hubs -- especially when they see their funding cut and value questioned.
