What a wonderful initiative! This program allows kids to borrow without a library card, on the honour system.
It seems to me that by demonstrating this trust, the library community is telling the child how much they are valued - and it also lets them know how much reading is valued.
Congratulations to Oakville Public library for this great encouragement of literacy in kids who mightn't have otherwise had much access to it.
