West Vancouver, BC—After eight years of service, West Vancouver Memorial Library Board Trustee Felicia Zhu is at the end of her term. Felicia also chaired the Board’s Advocacy Committee and acted as Liaison for the WVML Foundation Board.
Felicia has been an incredible resource to the Library by securing grants and fundraising for much-needed equipment and programs. During her time as a Trustee, Felicia made lasting connections between the Library and the Chinese community in West Vancouver.
