Members of the Board of Trustees

The Board of the Whistler Public Library is a committed group of people who love libraries and love Whistler. As appointees of the Mayor and Council, Board members work hard with the Library Director and staff to help make our library the dynamic, progressive, and inspiring place it is today. Specifically, the Board, along with the RMOW, has overall fiscal responsibility for the library. The Board’s other primary roles include helping to determine strategic priorities, developing policies, and hiring the Library Director. The Board meets the first Wednesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. in the library Community Room with the exception of the month of August.

The WPL Board is operated pursuant to the BC Library Act.

If you are interested in getting involved as a volunteer on one of our committees (fundraising, advocacy & relationship building) please contact the Chair, Bevin Heath Ansley at Trustee recruitment has been completed for this year, but we do accept new recruits every year, starting in September. Please check back in the fall if you're interested in joining us!
