Our Vision and Values

OLA is leading and inspiring the growth and innovation of the library and information services sector. Our set of guiding values have stood the test of time and continue to guide us in our work. 

OLA Annual Campaign - I Read Canadian

Every young Canadian should have access to Canadian books. 

The I Read Canadian Fund was created to make sure kids have every opportunity to read great books and to participate in a book club.  

The I Read Canadian Fund connects young Canadians with Canadian books by:  

  • Donating new books to communities in need to support reading programs. Many of these are rural or fly-in communities or places where budgets are very limited.  
  • Supporting schools, libraries, and other organizations in priority communities so they can participate in reading programs.  
  • Connecting authors and illustrators to young fans at festivals, and their schools.  

Our supporters include library workers, educators, authors, illustrators, publishers, parents, and other individuals who understand how crucial it is to give young people new Canadian books.  

How else can you support OLA?

The Library Marketplace is a vibrant online store with an eclectic range of merchandise and books tailored to folks who work in or love libraries. A portion of the revenues support the operation of the OLA – and we have some of the best deals out there!

Help us continue to do what we do best: empowering the people and places of library land, and the communities they serve. 

OLA is a registered charity. If you donate more than $20 today, you will receive a tax receipt.
