Upcoming board meetings
Current board members
Student advisory trustee
The student advisory trustee is appointed annually and serves for the academic year, typically September to June. Student trustees attend board meetings and share items of note on behalf of youth at the library.
Serving on the board
North Vancouver City Library is governed by the Library Act and managed by the North Vancouver City Library Board.
The board consists of nine voting trustees, including one representative from City of North Vancouver council. There is one non-voting student representative.
Trustees are appointed by council in December of each year. A trustee’s term-of-office is two years to a maximum of eight consecutive years. The council representative is appointed to a one‐year term. The chief librarian is the ex-officio secretary to the board.
The board has overall fiscal responsibility for the library. Other primary responsibilities include determining strategic priorities, developing policies, and hiring the chief librarian.
Apply to serve on the board
Applications to serve on the board are accepted by the City of North Vancouver during the public notice period, typically toward the end of the year.
The board seeks to reflect the diversity of the community. We expect our trustees to be team players, excellent communicators, and conscientious and reliable attendees. Strong connections in our community are an asset. Specific skills (ex: financial or business knowledge, policy development, governance experience, strategic planning and assessment experience, human resource management) are helpful, but not a requirement.
