2015 ANNUAL REPORT
MESSAGE FROM THE CEO & BOARD CHAIR The final year of our Strategic Plan to Inspire, Create, Engage and Lead came to a close in 2015. Over the last five years, during the course of the plan, we made significant enhancements to library service in Greater Victoria. These innovations included the introduction of exciting new digital collections, enhanced services for priority groups and expanded community partnerships. We have moved the library forward while staying true to our roots as an inclusive and welcoming place where people feel a sense of belonging and a connection to their community. People are what make our library great: patrons who regularly visit their local branches, volunteers who deliver books to the homebound and donors who generously support our work. At the heart of the library are the dedicated staff and Board members who are committed to making GVPL your place to connect, discover and imagine.
