Minister Kirby Issues Statement on Release of Report on Provincial Public Library System

The recommendations put forward in the report will inform next steps in the decision-making process for the Provincial Information Library Resources Board and our government.

EY was engaged to conduct an independent, comprehensive and transparent review of our provincial public library system.

To inform the review, EY held 11 consultations across the province from October 5 to November 8, 2016. Feedback was also gathered through staff and public surveys and written submissions.
