BMPL Policies and Plans

2024 Budget 

The Library Board has a Multi-Year Funding Agreement with the Town of the Blue Mountains that provides the Board with an annual allotment of 6% of the previous year's Tax Levy. The Funding Agreement enables BMPL to plan funding over multiple years, improving long-term strategic planning, more efficient use of staff time and resources, and greater certainty to patrons about the future of GLAM services.
