MOU between ABPBC and BCLA

BCLA President Anne Olsen is pleased to announce that the Association of Book Publishers of BC (ABPBC) and BCLA have signed an MOU signalling a new and collaborative partnership.

Together both Associations will celebrate and promote BC publishers and authors and will support librarians and library staff across the province to develop their knowledge of BC publisher’s books. Additionally the MOU indicates that both signatories will work together to advance and endorse the BC Summer Reading Club.

With the signing of the MOU both Associations look forward to contributing to an even more vibrant and engaged BC literary community and to contributing collaboratively to the knowledge sector. Some important details of the MOU include:

Our intention is to work with ABPBC and with the Libraries Branch to mount an event announcing the formal signing of the MOU and to help launch BC Library Month, in October 2017. We will share more information with the library community as we firm up plans.

We hope you are all as excited as we are to be working with the ABPBC for our joint benefit!

Best regards,

Anne Olsen
