Rediscover the Library Movement

August 2004
Feliciter;2004, Vol. 50 Issue 4, p132
The article discusses the inaugural address of Stephen Abram, president of Canadian Library Association. According to him candles are an almost universal symbol, and several candle metaphors are apt to various situations. Candles seem to be involved in nearly every human celebration. He believes in intellectual freedom, the power of school libraries, the role of unfettered access to information in a democracy, balance in copyright laws, and more. Threats to libraries and information rights are direct threats to Canadian values.
