Saanich rep named library board chair

Former teacher Greg Bunyan has sat on board since 2009

Greg Bunyan was named last week the chair of the Greater Victoria Public Library board.

Bunyan, a Saanich resident, has sat on the board as one of the municipality’s citizen representatives since 2009. He served as vice-chair of the board in 2011 and 2012.

“Our public library helps build better communities by being a hub for life-long learning,” Bunyan said.

“GVPL is a recognized leader in developing high-quality, innovative services and community partnerships that benefit the entire region.”

Bunyan comes from a background in education, having previously worked as a teacher and an administrator in the Saanich School District.

The GVPL is governed by a board of directors made up of municipal councillors and citizen representatives.

 

In addition to Bunyan, Saanich is represented on the board by Wayne Bembridge, Karen Potts, Anne Kirkaldy and Coun. Nichola Wade.
