Process includes new library, archives and heritage museum

Residents who have strong opinions about what a new main library should look like are being asked to send Greater Sudbury their opinions in an online survey.

“The City of Greater Sudbury has initiated a process for the site selection of a new central library, archives and heritage museum complex and looks forward to the community's participation,” the city said in a release Thursday. “The city has retained Yallowega Bélanger Architecture and Urban Strategies Inc. to lead this important initiative.” 


The deadline to take part in the online survey is Tuesday, March 18. The four pages of survey questions include, 'The library is the anchor of a city. Do you agree or disagree?' and 'Are there examples of existing libraries, archives or heritage projects that you admire? What are their qualities that you find most appealing?'

The survey can be accessed at sudburylibrary.survey.esolutionsgroup.ca/TakeSurvey.aspx?SurveyID=74K0np2

In addition to the survey, the public is invited to an open house March 20 at the main library on Mackenzie Street from 4-7 p.m. to give input in person and to get a behind-the-scenes look at how the library works.

According to the library's website, the “open house is designed to give the public a better understanding about how the library functions on a day-to-day basis and to have an opportunity to see what is in the works for the new central library, archives and heritage museum complex.”
