Melanie Wilke

I moved to Terrace 16 years ago with the intent of staying for a year or two! Since then, I have raised my daughter here, spent 8 years as the Children’s Librarian at Terrace Public Library, and now another 8 as the Library Coordinator for Northwest Community College.
I have a passionate belief in libraries and how much they enrich a society. I believe that they demonstrate the values of cooperation, community, democracy and education.

When not inside a library, I can often be found hiking, camping, or canoeing with my partner and our dog, or enjoying delicious food with great friends.

I have lived in Terrace for 27 years. I enjoy all that Terrace has to offer; good schools, recreational activities; cultural events, family and friends. I enjoy biking, playing bridge and travelling.

My career, prior to retirement in 2012, was in finance and accounting in the forest industry. I have served on the board of TRICORP, the Terrace Hospice Society and the Strata Council where I live. I have been treasurer of the board of the Terrace Public Library for number of years.

I believe that one must give back to their community and one of the ways that I do that is as a member of the library board.

I moved to Terrace with my husband in 2000. 17 years and 4 kids later, we’re loving life in this beautiful part of the world.I’m an Occupational Therapist and have enjoyed working part-time for Northern Health for 15 years. Our family loves the outdoor adventures that the Terrace area offers, and depending on the season, can most likely be found at the Onion Lakes Ski Trails or one of the many awesome hiking trails.

I am glad that we have such an excellent Public Library in Terrace, because after an active day, there is nothing better than relaxing with a good book.

A retired educator, Keith Gosse taught for some 35 years in the BC and Yukon public school systems. He now pursues his interests: amateur radio, photography, and messing about in his shop.

Libraries have always been important as a source of information for his teaching and his interests. That's why he's a member of the board.

I got my first library card when I was five years old. My mother was such a voracious reader and lover of books that we had to build an addition to our house that would withstand the weight of her personal library. I loved making trips to our local library and would spend hours exploring the world of words.

As a teacher, I also really value all that libraries offer to all members of their respective communities. I am excited to see the evolution of these institutions and proud to be part of the Terrace Public Library board.

I was born in Terrace, raised my family here and practiced as a community Pharmacist for 25 years. Now retired, I spend much of my spare time volunteering in our community.

My volunteer experience in Terrace includes long term care pharmacy consulting for various Northern Health facilities and TDCSS,Diabetes Clinics, Northwest Music Festival, TDCSS Board, Northwest Library Federation Board, Friends of the Library, the Terrace Public Library Board and more.

I believe that Volunteering enriches one's life and is the key to our amazing community.
