|The Province announced some additional funding for|
Libraries across BC on Friday.
Friday's announcement of funding for Libraries across the province is getting some additional push from NDP MLA's in the Northwest, with both Nathan Cullen and Jennifer Rice making note of the distribution of 45 million dollars to all of the province's 71 Public Libraries.
The one time grants will be in addition to the annual operating funding that libraries receive. This will give libraries flexibility to address local priorities, including longer hours, bigger digital collections and better access to literacy and lifelong learning opportunities.
Funds will be distributed to libraries by March 31, 2023.
