In B.C., there are 71 public libraries. There are four types of public libraries: municipal libraries, regional library districts, public library associations and integrated public library systems. Each library has a board that is responsible for policy development, strategic direction, governance, hiring and finance.
In Chetwynd we are a public library association. Our volunteer board is built from a representative from the Peace River Regional District, a liaison from the District of Chetwynd Council and 9 community volunteers. To be able to vote at the AGM and to hold a board position you must be 18 years old and a member of the Chetwynd Public Library. Public libraries are governed by the Library Act which is legislation which sets the framework for Public Libraries within our province.
