Since 2017, the New Brunswick Public Library Service (NBPLS) has been partnering with various cultural and heritage sites in New Brunswick to offer free passes through the province’s public libraries. This presentation will reveal how the partnership started, how it works, how libraries and partners benefit from it, and how it helps us to bridge the gap with underserved populations such as newcomers and low-income families. Join us to discover why this was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up!
