Regina Public Library Central Library Development Process
Jun. 6, 2014
Regina, SK – Regina Public Library (RPL) is pleased to announce the hiring of the public engagement firm, DIALOG, for the Board’s public consultations regarding the future of the city’s downtown Central Library. In addressing the challenges facing the Library, the RPL Board and Executive are re-engaging the public to talk about their needs and aspirations for their Library system, and their Central Library, as fundamental in properly preparing for the future.
The public consultation process will begin with key stakeholder consultations followed by full public engagement taking place later in June, and throughout the summer and early fall. A launch event for the public consultations will be held June 25th at Central Library for the media and the public to ask questions and get engaged.
“It is a great privilege to work with people who have such a passion for their work and understand the challenges before them, but also embrace input from the community. That means opening up a dialogue with the people who support them and the people they serve,” said Jennifer Fix, DIALOG Spokesperson.
DIALOG is a Vancouver-based company working with partners who have developed a specialty in library system public engagement through their acclaimed efforts with Vancouver Public Library and Calgary Public Library. DIALOG will now assist RPL in plotting a course for the future.
“Engaging the staff, stakeholders and public on the future of the Central Library is incredibly important to RPL and we’re pleased to work with DIALOG on this part of the project. This is a very exciting time for the Library,” said Darryl Lucke, Chair of the RPL Board of Directors.
