Media Relations

OLA relies on dozens of volunteers who make up our many committees, councils and boards. We also curate many nationally acclaimed events and programs, which include the Forest of Reading, Festival of Trees, and the OLA Super Conference. 

Our volunteers are Ontario's experts in:
Public libraries Library trustees Academic libraries
Literacy and education

School libraries Collections and resources Library programs
Advocacy issues

We're here to assist media in capturing an accurate picture of Ontario's libraries, while also providing resources and interviews for literacy and education issues. For media inquiries, please contact
