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.
Thanks to generous funding from the Public Library Services Branch, BCLTA is able to offer full-day Trustee Orientation sessions at no charge in your community. This highly-regarded program is an ideal opportunity for your board to come together to review trustee roles and responsibilities, enhance your board’s effectiveness, and generate new ideas and enthusiasm. Sessions are delivered upon request, so call now to arrange a workshop in your community.
