What are we up to?
RALLY TO STOP THE LIBRARY CUTS!
The University of Ottawa Library is on the chopping block. The University of Ottawa is planning to cut almost $2 million from the Library collection budget. We can’t let this happen!
Tuition fees are going up and the library budgets are going down! Libraries are knowledge banks. The University should be investing in the library, not putting it through the guillotine!
March with us to Tabaret Hall to tell the administration that we won’t let them cut our library!
COME TO THE RALLY!
Where: Student square in front of Morisset Library, University of Ottawa
When: Wednesday, November 30 at noon
SIGN THE PETITION
Thank you to our allies at APUO GSAÉD, CUPE 2626, APTPUO, SFUO, SSUO, SEIU for their support!
