The Okanagan Regional Library (ORL) wants its users to help plan for the future.
A series of public engagement sessions named Shape the Future of Your Library is being hosted at various branches, seeking to gather insight from communities and allow users to share their thoughts.
All kinds of library users are invited to share input, allowing the locations to better serve their communities, reads an ORL media release.
“In these dynamic times, libraries are more important than ever. We want to ensure that your library is an essential resource and community hub for everyone. We’re inviting all voices to be heard as we plan our future,” said Danielle Hubbard, CEO of the Okanagan Regional Library.
