Libraries and Literacy

Libraries and Literacy fosters strong partnerships between public, school, and academic libraries to enable resource sharing and to realize the vision for a seamless library network. The Libraries and Literacy business area provides leadership for B.C.’s public libraries through advice, training, funding and support for a number of programs. 

From BC OneCard and Interlibrary Loan to library website content management systems and a provincial Integrated Library System, Libraries and Literacy helps libraries work together more effectively.

In addition to fostering development in libraries, this business area achieves provincial literacy objectives through collaboration with literacy partners in B.C. and across Canada.
