Civic engagement over the future of Calgary’s library system continues September 27 with the second of six public meetings. As the city prepares to build a new central library to replace the aging W.R. Castell on Sixth Avenue and Macleod Trail downtown, Calgarians are being asked to put forward their ideas on what the city’s libraries should offer.
A survey of the public’s library-oriented priorities conducted over the summer received 12,730 responses.
The findings of the survey and public meetings will be presented to council in early 2013 as it determines the types of library services and facilities Calgary will offer.
The September 27 meeting is at 5:30 p.m. at the First Alliance Church, 12345 40th Street S.E.
