Books are one of the last mediums uninterrupted by sponsored messages or product placements. But what happens if funding for public libraries evaporates? In Canada’s most populous province, Ontario, the government recently slashed public library service budgets by 50%. Save Our Libraries rallied people across the province to sign a petition to restore government funding. The creative served as a cautionary tale of what the future might look like if we don’t support our local libraries.
