The City said the input they receive will be used to help create the final building program and functional plan.

“Whether you’re a regular library user or not, we need your insight and ideas to make sure our new central library delivers the programs and services that will meet our community’s needs through to 2040,” said Steve Kraft, CEO of Guelph Public Library.

The City has already posted a long list of programs that are planned, which includes topics on computer skills, fitness and exercise, language learning, cooking, gardening and crafts.
