  1. In a past podcast you’ve talked about getting books into libraries. Do you know where I can get a list of Canadian Libraries and their email addresses?
    Thanks for all your wonderful work. I never miss an episode.

    1. Great question, Connie.

      There’s a link to a Canadian Director of Libraries (from CDN GOVT site) and other library/bookstore resources kept relatively up to date and modified every few months) here:

      Unfortunately, not many of them have all contact info easily exportable. I’ve often had to hunt through the links to each site and gather the contact info/email/address info manually.

      And thanks so much for listening! Delighted that you enjoy the episodes!

      1. Thanks, Connie. Yeah, Alberta publishers and libraries seem to be (from my experience) a lot more progressive and open about sharing/collaboration) than other places.
