    Structure and Mandates

    The New Brunswick Public Library System is a partnership between the provincial government and participating municipalities. The provision of public library services is regulated by the New Brunswick Public Libraries Act.

    The New Brunswick Public Library System provides access to a provincial collection of more than 1.8 million items, as well as to programs and services ranging from story hour to public lectures to services such as reference, Inter-Library loan and public access workstations. These programs and services are designed to respond to the educational, informational, cultural and recreational needs of residents of the province. The library system supports economic and social development and promotes self-reliance by providing opportunities for New Brunswickers to enhance their knowledge and their creative capabilities.

    The public library system consists of :
