Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront


Territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, in Vancouver.


Seek. Spark. Ignite. What gets you fired up? How do you know what to change, what to create, and what to let go? Creative tension can lead to breakthrough ideas in the library sector. Together, we can spark new solutions to the challenges we face, and light the path to future discoveries. We think the conference theme is a timely call to action, to be curious, to take risks and to explore the unknown. Please join us at the 2017 BC Library Conference to discuss, debate and deliberate with colleagues who ignite innovative change.
