During this election campaign the BC Library Partners are asking the three major political parties – the Liberals, NDP, and the Green Party for a commitment to the following:
1. A sustained, ongoing increase to the annual operating grants to $20 million a year. Moving forward, we also ask that the increase be tied to inflation.
2. A one-time $35 million COVID recovery fund for public libraries across the province.
Contact BCLTA Executive Director Jerrilyn Schembri with any questions regarding BCLTA’s work with the Library Partners and advocacy.
