RPL survey – important considerations

What’s in the Survey?

Satisfaction with:

  • RPL services and importance of services in all Branches
  • Parking around Central Library – possibly leading to a costly underground parkade, and certain demolition of the current building

In an upgraded or new Central Library building, possible inclusion of:

  • educational and cultural services
  • access to public computers/technology
  • meeting spaces, conference facilities
  • museum, theatre, entertainment facilities
  • coffee shop
  • retail stores, grocery store
  • offices and condos

When filling out the survey consider:

  • services that are part of our library system that should be continued
  • new services that would contribute to literacy of all kinds
  • need to locate services in Central Library, requiring a much larger space
  • much larger facility would likely lead to a presumed need for a public-private partnership to pay for costs

RPL survey – input on services and buildings

RPL Survey on until August 31, 2013

The online survey is intended to give input to the Regina Public Library Board about programs, services and facilities that Central Library and the Branches provide to their patrons. http://www.reginalibrary.ca/cld/

The Friends see Central Library as more than simply another branch but as an historic provider of the Children’s Branch, Dunlop Art Gallery, Film Theatre and Prairie History Room as part of the basics of the library system.  For 51 years, these have been a valuable part of Regina’s libraries and need to be kept.  An underground parkade, or other major additional demands will likely lead to demolishment of the current heritage modernist building.

The survey doesn’t ask about keeping the current building – put ideas on this and other topics in the last question. Please fill out the survey.  Pass this on to your friends.

If you can’t do the survey on-line call the RPL (306) 777-6000 or the Friends (306) 535-9570.

RPL Survey – response neeeded soon

The Regina Public Library has an on-line survey about library services and in particular about Central Library. This will be used in planning services and for the upgrade of the current Central Library Building / demolishment of the current building and construction of a new building. And for planning future library services. All who are interested in the library are strongly urged to fill in this questionnaire by the end of August. http://www.reginalibrary.ca/cld/

Perhaps copies could be printed and given to people who don’t have access to a computer.

 

RPL Survey re Central on Now

The Regina Public Library is currently conducting a survey about library services and trying to gauge support for the amenities that they would like to see connected to an upgraded Central Library.

Apparently it is quite a long survey, one person interviewed said there were questions like :

Do you think there should be a movie theatre or restaurant nearby?
Do you think it should be located within a mall? Near a shopping centre?
It would be interesting to know what the questions are.
The library is also conducting some targeted on-line surveys and will do a patrons survey in the future.
One  hopes that the questions keep all of the options open, including the renovation, rather than the deomolition, of the modernist Central Library, which the majority of people contacted in our FRPL survey said they would prefer.
