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 WPL Board is operated pursuant to the BC Library Act.
