Board Members

Our Library is run by its Members

The Gibsons and District Public Library Association operates under terms laid out in the provincial Library Act.

Every adult library card holder is a member of the Public Library Association and is eligible to vote in the annual election of trustees. Trustees serve two-year terms, and they are not paid. Any member of the library may run for the board. Trustees may not serve more than 8 consecutive years on the board.

  • Call for Nominations

Nominations are open for positions on the GDPL Board for 2-year terms commencing Mar. 6th, 2021.  Candidate packages, including nomination forms, are available at the library and completed forms must be received at the Library by January 23rd, 2021.  The AGM will be held on March 6th, 2021.

  • Board Meetings

The board usually meets on the second Monday of each month at 5:15 p.m. Meetings are open to the public, but please check for date and time changes at the Library. There are no meetings in July and August.
