Island Library wants your views on its future plans

The Vancouver Island Regional Library is holding a series of community consultations to plan for the future.

Everyone is being invited to join in two-hour sessions at their local branch, or at a designated facility if space is limited, to provide feedback for VIRL’s five-year Strategic Plan.

People attending the sessions will be helping the VIRL with decisions that will “take their local library from good to great,” says Marketing and Communications Officer Natasha Bartlett.

The Chemainus Branch held its consultation June 10.  The Ladysmith Branch will hold it’s June 23 at the Eagle’s Hall, Lower Room, 921 1st Ave, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

For more information about the sessions, or to take a public survey, which is available online, visit virl.bc.ca. You can also inquire at your local branch for more information.
