Regarding urgent update – March 16

Dear members,

You will have received an update from Christina regarding closures of City facilities, including all VPL locations.

I am in regular contact with Christina and the executive is working hard to ensure that members are protected as much as possible – health & safety and compensation related. Of course,  these are extra ordinary measures taken and it is a challenging time for everyone. We appreciate hearing from you and recognize how stressful it has been over the past week. Please try to take the time to breathe, check in with yourselves and your loved ones, access resources and supports (such as EFAP) that are available to you, and email with questions you may have. We will do our best to respond.

To our Gibsons and Sechelt members – I am also in contact with your Chief Librarians’ and hope to have updates to you directly through your unit chairs.

Yours in service and solidarity,
