BC Library Trustees' Association


In an effort to promote library services and literacy throughout the province, BCLTA is encouraging all members to write to the provincial government requesting a province-wide initiative to install library directional signs along our highways.  Help us to get people into your communities and into your libraries as they travel BC's highways.
