In 2020 public library trustees gave approximately 64,000 hours to the governance of BC public libraries and then volunteered another approximately 48,000 hours in their communities across British Columbia. That is over 100,000 volunteer hours from BC public library trustees!
At the British Columbia Library Trustees Association (BCLTA) we have always known that our members volunteer beyond their public library boards and that they play a significant role in building resilient, inclusive, and compassionate communities across British Columbia. The BCLTA is pleased to share with the provincial government and with the broader community a snapshot of BC public library trustees as volunteers.
