Petition to the Vancouver Public Library Board
Save the Bindery@VPL
Whereas: the in-house Bindery of the Vancouver Public Library provides high quality, reliable and cost-effective conservation, protection and preservation of the library collection; and
Whereas: a comprehensive in-house binding programme has environmental benefits since it reduces unnecessary transportation, while ensuring quality conservation of the collection; and
Whereas: the revenue which the Bindery provides through provision of conservation services to other libraries throughout B.C. could be enhanced with a thorough business plan and marketing strategy:
We, the undersigned residents of British Columbia and clients of the Vancouver Public Library urge the Vancouver Public Library Board to build on the success of the Bindery, ensure in-house binding services continue, abandon plans to contract-out binding services and instead develop a comprehensive business plan to increase revenue from provision of binding services to other library systems.
