Premier Dalton McGuinty says he is making "the most significant" investment in school libraries in a generation with a promise to spend $120 million on more books and librarians in elementary schools.

"We'll be providing 1.7 million more books on an annual basis. For every elementary school, that means 430 more books every year."

McGuinty said he could not have done it without the help of Reisman (Indigo), who has agreed to provide the new books at cost.

McGuinty said librarians play an integral role in fostering a child's interest in reading, which is why he is setting aside $40 million of the literacy investment to hire more.

Humm...is Indigo dumping unsold books on libraries? or using government dollars to get leverage with publishers on price? Smells dirty. I like the hiring of school librarians though.
