In order to best serve their communities, New Brunswick Public Libraries offer services, programs and resources established on a local, regional and provincial level. Public-school libraries have a double mandate: serving the general public, as well as serving the students and school personnel. Additionally, NBPLS hosts the first public-academic library specializing in art in Canada: the New Brunswick Library of Craft and Design.
Library trustees are key advisors and advocates who help shape the future of library development in New Brunswick. The trustees also advocate for public libraries and promote their value in the community and their contribution to the public good.
