Canada’s national network of provincial and territorial library associations. The Partnership offers a variety of services and programs for members of their respective associations.


BC Summer Reading Club

The BC Summer Reading Club is a free literacy program designed to engage school-aged children, ages 5-14, with libraries and reading, throughout the summer.

Coaching Program

The pandemic that began in 2020 will have lasting effects on how we work, engage with colleagues and communities, reflect on past goals and objectives, and plan for the future. Recognizing this, the BCLA Board of Directors allocated reserve funding to pilot a subsidized professional coaching service in 2021, to provide support for BCLA members during this time of change.

Mentorship Program

The BCLA Mentorship Program exists to connect and empower Association members by fostering positive relationships in the library community. The program encourages sharing, and aims to promote leadership and commitment to the profession.
