We Want Your Recommendations

 

Victoria Day Long Weekend is the unofficial start to summer in Canada, and that means it's nearly time for vacations, long sunny (hopefully) days, and lots of summer reading. And we want to know what your book recommendations are for this summer, for a future blog post on our homepage!

 

Send your name (how you want it presented), library (if you want it to be identified), and recommendations to socialmedia@lsc.on.ca.

Publisher Catalogues

 

LSC is making an effort to reduce the amount of publisher catalogues we distribute.

 

Many are becoming available in digital format only and we will continue to create selection lists of these seasonally. LSC’s in-house catalogues (Graphic Novels, Mass Market, DVDs, etc.) will not be affected. As a bonus, we will be helping the environment.  

LSC will cease sending physical copies of publisher catalogues as of May 31st, 2019. If you would like to continue receiving publisher catalogues or have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our mailing coordinator, Angela Payne.

SOLS Delivery Announcement

 

On Thursday, April 18th, SOLS announced that, due to budget cuts made in the Ontario Provinicial Budget, they will be ceasing the SOLS delivery service. For LSC's complete response to this announcement, please click here.

 

In short, here is what this means for LSC:

There will be NO disruption to deliveries to libraries.
There will be NO changes to pricing for delivery or any other LSC services.

 

LSC will immediately move all libraries that get material through the SOLS delivery service to private courier services. There may be a final delivery through SOLS in the week ending on April 26th. Again, please see our complete response here, and if you have any questions, please contact CEO Michael Monahan at mmonahan@lsc.on.ca
