Fine-free cards for children.

London Public Library plays a key role in supporting the work to end poverty in our community. Providing fine-free cards for children, and reducing fines for teens, is a significant way to support community literacy and learning, the keys to enriching lives, creating future opportunities, and strengthening people and neighbourhoods.

We want every child to have a Library Card and to be able to borrow the books, music, movies and information needed for discovering, learning and imagining. For many families, the worry over accumulating late fees for overdue items can be a barrier to borrowing these essential resources, using Library technology, or even visiting a Library.

In its 2016 report, London for All, a Roadmap to End Poverty, the Mayor’s Poverty Task Force identifies poverty as a significant community issue. London Public Library’s current Strategic Plan, Library Space is Community Place, identifies the reduction of barriers to access (our User First philosophy) as a key strategic priority.

Fine-free cards for children 12 years and under and reduced fines for teens are your Library’s latest commitment to working to reduce poverty by removing barriers to access for children and families. Barriers have also been reduced in recent years for adults in our community who do not have personal identification, due to their situations.

The Library’s collections that can be borrowed by everyone and access to technology are important contributions to our community, providing access to the literacy and learning tools so necessary for future success. We are committed to reducing barriers and increasing access to those resources.

We encourage families to come in to any library location to obtain fine-free cards for their children and to have our staff clear existing fines on children’s cards so that families have a fresh start. As well, fines for teen cards are being reduced and we want to work with them to help clear existing fines on their cards.

The details, as of September 1, 2017.

Library Cards for Children, 12 years and under, will not have overdue fines, and existing fines will be cleared. Children’s materials borrowed using an Adult card will still be subject to fines. Library Cards for Teens, 13 to 18 years, will have overdue fines reduced to the rate charged for Seniors. Teens can work with staff to reduce existing fines. Read Away Your Fines campaigns for Teens will continue.

Leadership from Friends. Photo of Library Board Chair, Scott Courtice, receiving cheque for the Library’s Infinite Possibilities Creative Spaces campaign, from Friends of the Library President, Carmen Sprovieri, on June 15.

A $250,000 pledged gift from the Friends of the London Public Library on June 15 has given momentum to the Infinite Possibilities Creative Spaces Campaign, the Library’s campaign to develop new spaces for creativity, learning and gathering as a community. This significant donation will be directed to the development of new interior spaces on the first floor of the renovated Central Library. The Library Commons will be a creative space with a technology lab, media area, reading lounge and space for innovative programming and events.

Last year the Library embarked on a 4.5 million dollar revitalization project at Central Library that included updating and renovating the infrastructure. As we move forward into the next stage of the campaign, we are looking for support to provide Londoners with the Library they need for the future. London Public Library is reaching out to the community to raise the remaining 1 million dollars required to complete the project.

“The Friends have shown community leadership with their gift of $250,000 and moved the campaign forward in a significant way,” says Christine Walker, Fund Development Manager at the Library. “We hope the community will join them in supporting the campaign. Individual donations do help. They do make a difference.”

Over the years, the Friends of the Library have raised more than 1.6 million dollars to support value-added Library programs and services, primarily through the operation of The Library Store at Central and the annual Book Sale at the Western Fair District. This dedicated volunteer organization will celebrate their 24th anniversary this fall.

With this important contribution to the Infinite Possibilities Creative Spaces Campaign, the Friends continue their legacy of generous support by helping to build the Library of the future.

Choose to boost veggies and fruit.

London’s Healthy Kids Community Challenge is promoting Choose to Boost Veggies and Fruit, a campaign coordinated by the city’s Child and Youth Network that promotes healthier lifestyles. The focus of this initiative is to provide families with access to fun, child-friendly books about veggies and fruit, in community settings like Childreach play groups, neighbourhood Family Centres, and other programs for families throughout London.

Of course, you can also find these books at the Library to. Our Librarians selected books that present vegetables and fruit in an appealing and playful way, providing a counterpoint to the exciting way that junk food is often marketed. We bet children will love their veggies more once they have had fun reading about them!

Choose to Boost Veggies and Fruit is the third campaign of a four-year provincial strategy that is promoting and supporting children’s health through the funding of community activities and initiatives like this.

As part of the previous campaign, Water Does Wonders, that encourages families to choose water over sugary drinks, the Library introduced initiatives to improve access to water. Through recent funding from Ontario’s Healthy Kids Community Challenge, the Library received water dispensers, now being used to offer fruit-infused water during library programs, and installed two new bottle-filling water fountains at Central Library.

These are a few of the fun books we have selected about veggies and fruits.

Eating the Alphabet, Fruits and vegetables from A to Z by Lois Ehlert.

Orange pear apple bear by Emily Gravett.

Go go grapes, a fruit chant by April Pulley Sayre.

One big salad, a delicious counting book by Juana Medina.

Community Wellness Pilot Project.

Community Wellness Workers have been in place at the Library one day a week, helping individuals find information on mental health and addiction services and the supports available to them. This partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association Middlesex brings professionals out into the community to make referrals and help people navigate the mental health system. The goal is to provide better awareness of and access to services. Key to the project’s success is being available in a safe community space like the Library where people already visit and spend time.

Carolyn Petley, a Mental Health Worker, says the response to their presence in the Library was immediate. People with questions about services started talking to them about what was going on in their lives. Carolyn believes that being visible and approachable in a safe, public space like the Library makes it easier for someone to take the first step in finding help.

There are people accessing services for the first time and others who have disengaged from programs and services but are struggling to cope with daily life. They also have people asking how they can best support someone they know and care about who is dealing with problems. As well, Library staff have sought advice on reaching out to individuals who appear to be socially isolated or disengaged from their surroundings.

The CMHA staff meet a diverse range of needs. They may help with a mental health crisis on the spot, provide information about community counselling services, housing options, emergency shelters and free meals, or inform isolated individuals about social groups where they can meet with others. There is always time to chat and everyone is made to feel welcome.

Staff recommend services to agencies  that can help, including Canadian Mental Health Association Middlesex, Dale Brain Injury Services, Mission Services, Youth Opportunities Unlimited, Salvation Army, London Training Centre, G.A. Wheable Adult Education Centre and Fanshawe College.

It’s the expertise of the Community Health Workers that gets people to the appropriate services and organizations in a more direct way, removing barriers for those already experiencing life challenges.

CMHA staff are available Wednesdays from 9:30 am to 5 pm at Central Library on the 2nd Floor.

LIBRARIES IN THEIR LIVES.

We talked to Chris dela Torre and Rebecca Zandbergen, the hosts of Afternoon Drive and London Morning, two new radio programs being broadcast on 93.5 FM from the CBC London station at the Central Library. We asked them to share some of their stories and experiences about libraries. Rebecca and Chris are new to London, having moved here to pursue their exciting new positions at CBC London. Both love the idea of the station being in the Library, seeing it as an obvious fit because both libraries and the CBC are about including everyone, something they strive to do when choosing topics and stories for their programs.

Chris dela Torre and his wife, Sara, come to Central Library on family outings with their three boys because the kids love libraries and, being new in town, they find it an easy way to meet other families.

Some of his own earliest memories are of visits to the library with his mom where she would find some quiet time and he could explore for hours. He remembers that whatever his interest was at any given time – monster movies, hockey or whatever – there would be books at the library.

Chris says that a library is like a toy store because it’s this place that’s filled with whatever you’re interested in. For his own sons, ages nine, six and two, he sees that they each definitely find their own thing there. His oldest needs no encouragement to read, he’s a voracious reader who read the entire Harry Potter series over the Christmas school break.

The six year old is into John Cena, the pro wrestler. Chris says, “Sure enough, we found some books on John Cena. So even for someone like him who’s not “bookie,” there’s still a connection for him through his interests.”

Chris believes you can really get to know yourself in a library because it’s this incredible resource of books and learning tools. He says, “It’s really up to you to guide your own journey in terms of what you want to learn. It’s all there and it’s free.” He thinks every community needs a library and every great city has a great library system.

MEMORABLE BORROWING EXPERIENCE

Chris credits a library system with leading him to the discovery of the genius of the Beastie Boys when he was a kid in 1990. He borrowed their album, Paul’s Boutique, the 12 inch vinyl LP, and it blew his mind.

Photo of Chris dela Torre with this caption, CHRIS DELA TORRE is the host of Afternoon Drive, a regional program that focuses on the voices and stories of Southwestern Ontario from 4 to 6 pm.

 

Rebecca Zandbergen has memories of going to the tiny one-room library in Iroquois, Ontario with her mom and sitting on the floor poring over books. She can recall many of the books she read as a child, from the Amelia Bedelia and Ramona books through to Judy Blume classics like Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret, and the popular Sweet Valley Twins series about identical twin sisters and their circle of school friends.

Of the Sweet Valley Twins books, Rebecca says, “My friends and I read them voraciously, then we’d want to talk about them. We used to give them to each other for birthdays, and I remember at our parties, there would be eleven girls saying, “Can I read it? Can I read it after you?” and we would make this list of who got to read it next. By the time the book got back to you, it would be a disaster because it had been through so many hands. My interest in those books, I think, was driven by their popularity but, also, they tapped into what girls my age thought and talked about.”

Currently, one of Rebecca’s favourite things is reading to her 16-month-old daughter. Right now they are enjoying the Olivia the Pig books together. She loved that her husband, Drew, before starting his new job in London, was able to take their daughter to the Books for Babies storytimes at the Children’s Library and that she could slip over from the CBC station during her work day to peek in on them.

MEMORABLE AUTHOR INTERVIEW

A book that stands out for Rebecca is The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill. She was completely absorbed by it – with the history, the particular place and time of the story. She couldn’t put it down. Getting to interview Lawrence Hill was a memorable experience for her. She says, “That was pretty cool. He’s such a smart guy and so giving and open to being interviewed.”

What  We’re Reading.

www.lpl.ca/staff-picks

Vanessa says Jana Bibi’s Excellent Fortunes by Betsy Woodman is a quirky, delightful read.

This charming tale, and first in a series, is set in India during the 1960s. Janet Laird inherits her grandfather’s Jolly Grant House estate in a small village in Uttar Pradesh and moves in with her chatty parrot, Mr. Ganguly, and her faithful ayah, Mary. She soon collects a colourful assortment of servants and neighbours, including a bagpipe-playing monkey chaser. Not long after settling into village life, news arrives that the government is planning to build a dam and force residents to leave. The eclectic cast of characters all come together to save their village by putting themselves on the map. And so Janet becomes a fortune teller and Jana Bibi’s Excellent Fortunes is born. With the help of her charming parrot, Jana Bibi helps to turn Hamara Nagar into a tourist destination with the intention of saving it from the government’s plan. Anyone who loves Alexander McCall-Smith’s No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency, will love this quirky, delightful read.
Vanessa is a Library Assistant at Children’s Library.
