The Ontario Library Association welcomes all media inquiries. 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 all media, communications, and marketing inquiries related to the Ontario Library Association or the Forest of Reading, please contact the Marketing and Communications department.
