Bruce County Public Library Releases 2022 Annual Report

Bruce County Public Library has wrapped up 2022 with the release of its Annual Report. The report opens with a message from Luke Charbonneau, who held the position of Board Chair from 2019 to 2022. He recounts how Bruce County Public Library successfully implemented its strategic priorities over the past year. Brooke Mclean, BCPL Library Director, followed up and expressed her excitement over the return to in-person programs and Branch services.

Bruce County Public Library released a new Strategic Plan for 2022-2025 that outlined three main strategic priorities: to be your trusted community connector, digital community facilitator, and community sharing place. These were the guiding principles for 2022.

Bruce County Public Library’s 2022 Annual Report features several notable moments broken down by community, programming, and collection headings. BCPL has also been working to diversify their catalogue and bring exciting and informative materials to all our Bruce County patrons.

Library Director Brooke McLean shares her enthusiasm over the Diversity Equity Inclusion (DEI) initiative. “It is important to ensure that Bruce County Public Library is for everybody by offering collection materials that represent all the different races, cultures, and identities residing in Bruce County.”

BCPL’s infographic ‘By the Numbers’ showed growth in website visits, social media followers, and the number of borrowed collection items. It was a successful year at BCPL.
