The BC Library Association (BCLA), the Association of BC Public Library Directors (ABCPLD), the BC Library Trustees Association (BCLTA), and the BC Libraries Cooperative, collectively the BC Public Library Partners, are proud to announce the debut of “BC Public Libraries 2020”, a short film supporting the “$20 million in 2020” advocacy campaign for the restoration of provincial library funding.

When elected, BC’s NDP Provincial Government committed to:
• Making things more affordable for your family
• Improving the services you count on
• Good jobs and a sustainable economy
• Reconciliation, respect and a better future

BC’s Public Libraries make a strong contribution in each and every one of these areas, and we are proud to share the contributions we make to our communities large and small across the province.

We are a training ground for future innovators. We encourage a sharing economy. We level the playing field by creating experiences for everyone. We are inclusive. We celebrate diversity.

We are BC’s Public Libraries. Our communities count on us.

Please enjoy this celebration of library service, and support public libraries in restoring the funding we need to keep our libraries vibrant, inclusive and strong.
