Jane Pyper, Toronto Public Library's CEO was one of the many speakers at the TD National Reading Summit. Here is what she had to say:

Five Principles Needed for a Canadian Reading Program

  1. Recognize Literacy as a Fundamental Human Right

  2. Reading Material Should Always Be Available and Free From Censorship

  3. Need to Address All Audiences and All Ages

  4. Need to Create Places, Time and Spaces for Reading to Happen

  5. We Cannot Priviledge Reading: reading is reading whether it be a book, newspaper, comic etc.
