Sad reminders of the library strike found on Roncesvalles.
SPOTTED BY: Torontoist Flickr Pool contributor Alejandro Santiago
WHERE: High Park Library, 228 Roncesvalles Avenue
WHEN: The evening of March 22
WHAT: As Toronto Public Library workers continue their strike small, visible signs of the disruption are starting to emerge. (The larger signs are much less visible—literacy levels being a hard thing to point at, and all.) The library has asked patrons to hang on to any materials they have checked out for the duration of the strike and return them when libraries are open again—book drop boxes have been locked for now. The strike began on March 18, after contract talks broke down with the City; the role of part-time workers is the biggest sticking point in negotiations.
