Attempts to organize a tour to Columbus with American participants have basically failed, but the Canadians are trying to organize a Canadian tour from Toronto.  The proposed route right now is from Toronto to Niagara Falls and returning to Toronto via London, which is about 600 km.


We are still very much in the planning stage, but we are looking for:

1) People willing to participate and/or help

2) Libraries willing to be a part of the tour
