Libraries and Literacy Renamed Libraries Branch
Organizational changes within the Ministry of Education have led to the renaming of the Libraries and Literacy Branch to the Libraries Branch. The five existing positions dedicated to public libraries continue to report to Assistant Deputy Minister Paige MacFarlane through Acting Director Beverley Shaw, while the four Literacy positions have been moved elsewhere in the Ministry.
The BCLTA is working with our partners, the BC Library Association and the Association of BC Public Library Directors, to continue our ongoing dialogue with the Ministry of Education. As always, we will communicate to our membership regularly on our activities and progress in advocating for BC's public libraries.
