Support the “$20 Million in 2020” Campaign

Why are BC Libraries important? Watch this video!
Join with us in calling for the provincial government to address the provincial funding gap for BC public libraries. Find more information on how to participate in the “$20 Million in 2020” campaign here.
Currently, the provincial government provides approximately $14 million in funding for public libraries. The BC Public Partners (The Association of BC Public Library Directors, the BC Library Trustees Association, the BC Library Association, and the BC Libraries Cooperative) are calling for an increase of $6 million that would go directly to the operating grants for BC public libraries. This increase would begin to address past funding cuts.
