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.
When filling board member vacancies, eligible nominees must be:
. 18 years of age or older;
. a current member of the Gibsons & District Public Library Association;
. a resident of The Town of Gibsons, Electoral Area D (Roberts Creek), Area E (Elphinstone), or Area F (West Howe Sound).
Completed nomination forms can be submitted to the Library. Candidate packages, including nomination forms, are available here.
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.
