Calgary Public Library asks its community three questions as it seeks to expand its services with a new building:
1. Awesome spaces and virtual places
In the design of space, how should libraries balance the need for a place of solitude with the need for interaction?
What impact might the changing demographics (cultural, economic, educational and social) have on the design and use of the library?
2. Diverse collections and inspiring resources
How can library staff help support your experience and use of the library in the future?
What would increase your use of the Library’s various collections?
3. Powerhouse programs and signature services
What kinds of programs and services could the library offer to encourage your creativity and self expression?"
