Don’t Raise the Tax on Books!

The Nova Scotia government is currently considering removing the provincial rebate on the HST for printed books, raising the tax from the current 5% to 15%. This move would have a serious impact on literacy in our province. As you are aware, our libraries have not seen an increase to their budgets in many years and a rise in the HST on printed books would essentially mean a cut to materials budgets for each library region. Beyond the obvious harm to libraries, the local publishing industry, and our education system, this increase will also impact literacy levels in households across the province. NSLA is asking its membership to send a clear message to the Government that this move is not in the best interest of Nova Scotians. Please add your voice by signing the online petition and sharing this message with your colleagues, friends, and MLA. Thank you for your support!
