The Ontario Library Association (OLA) is thrilled to recognize several individuals and organizations that have greatly contributed to Ontario’s libraries. From library advocacy to program development, the recipients of OLA’s 2015 awards have supported school, academic and public libraries with outstanding innovation in their communities. Awards will be presented to recipients during the annual OLA Super Conference, held from Jan. 27 to 30, 2016. Among the award winners is Joanne Plante, Conseil Des Écoles Catholiques Du Centre-Est by the L’Association des bibliothèques de l’Ontario-Franco (ABO-Franco), who won Le Prix Micheline Persaud.
Furthermore, Joanne Plante has been nominated by Radio-Canada (CBC) – Le Droit to be Personnality of the week! She was interviewed by Radio-Canada and Unique FM, and hopes this can give importance to School Libraries.
