Celebrate Libraries



“Beyond borrowing books, libraries are where people go to explore an idea, test a theory, make community connections, find information and share knowledge.”




“Libraries help people discover the joy of reading, develop new skills, form deep community ties, find a job, become entrepreneurs and participate in recreation and cultural experiences.”


Rob Fleming, Minister of Education –

“Libraries enhance our quality of life and contribute to strong, resilient and inclusive communities.”


Anne Olsen, president, British Columbia Library Association –

“All libraries are cornerstones of their communities and society. They ensure that every British Columbian has equitable access to information, ideas and works of the imagination.”
