4. Chemanius Library Borrowing The Board rescinded third reading of Bylaws No. 4028 and 4029 and gave third reading to the bylaws with amendments to meet new Provincial guidelines. There has been a change in philosophy by the Province, and local governments are no longer allowed to establish a borrowing service, as had been done for the previous Lake Cowichan Library borrowing. The revised bylaws acknowledge the creation of a Vancouver Island Regional Capital Construction Service.
