I received a copy of your recent letter to Minister Cullen, and I wanted to reach out to say thank you! When I was appointed Minister of Municipal Affairs, I was so delighted to learn that public libraries were part of my portfolio. I really appreciate all your hard work for BCLTA and library trustees, and in turn for public libraries – it has made such a tremendous difference in people’s lives. I think the pandemic in particular has helped us all learn just how important libraries are to community fabric.
While I’m sad I no longer work with the library branch in Municipal Affairs and all the amazing library partners across BC, I know that Minister Cullen really enjoys this portfolio, and I remain proud to be a part of a government that celebrates and supports BC’s public libraries.
All my best,
