Weigh in on the future of your library system

The goals and priorities for the Greater Victoria Public Library are up to you.

  • Sep. 25, 2015 9:00 a.m.

Whether you complete the online survey or attend an upcoming community workshop, the Greater Victoria Public Library wants to hear your thoughts on the near future of the library system.

The GVPL is developing its strategic plan for 2016 to 2020, which will outline its goals and priorities for the next five years. Ahead of the completion of that plan, it is encouraging the people it serves to weigh in on what they feel should be the key priorities over that time, and how best to serve the communities in which it operates.

Deputy CEO Lynne Jordon says the goal is to involve as many residents of Greater Victoria as possible between now and Oct. 12. The online Strategic Plan Survey is available to fill out at gvpl.ca/communityinput until that date. Paper surveys are available to take away at all GVPL branches, including the Juan de Fuca branch in Colwood and the Goudy branch in Langford.

The community workshop is planned for Oct. 5, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the community room at the Central branch on Broughton Street in Victoria. Registration is required, and can be completed at the web page listed above or at any GVPL branch.
