Another great evening was spent at Pembina Trail Library last Tuesday. The last of our four Inspiring Ideas – Ideas Fair events was attended by many interested members of the community, and even some from outside the city! Participants placed ‘tokens’ in containers to make decisions about how to allocate funds for collections and “books” was the first choice, next to our collection of DVDs and Blu-ray dics. And some were eager to tell us about their recent experiences with Zinio eMagazines and Hoopla (music, movies, and audiobooks). When selecting favorite pictures of libraries and spaces – the highest ranked picture was one with a children’s literacy playground – similar to one recently installed at Fort Garry Library. The information from these and the other activities will be used to help us develop our Strategic Plan for the future of Winnipeg Public Library.
If you have not yet filled out a survey which is available in English, French and in an accessible format, please do so. You could win a iPad Mini just for completing it! And watch out for those blue Inspiring Ideas t-shirts at libraries and at many locations and local events in the next couple of weeks. You may be asked to complete the survey by one of our roving Library Ambassadors. Please participate in our survey – we value your suggestions for your libraries!
