North Vancouver City Library Seeks Parent Input


North Vancouver City Library would like your help to plan for the future!
There will be a focus group with parents of 9-12 year olds on Monday, November 28th from 7:00-8:30pm in the North Vancouver City Library Board room. The library would love to hear from you about your experiences and how the library can best meet your needs.

The discussion will focus on: Identifying the wants and needs of you and your family, including: Where do you go in the North Shore for entertainment and activities, how do you find information about educational experiences and enriching activities for your children, and what do you imagine an “outside-the-box” library might look like or provide for families.

The focus group will be made up of no more than 12 parents so we can have a relaxed discussion. There are limited spaces available upon request for activities for children ages 4-12,  including a family story time and a Manga club event, which will happen in association with the focus group.

You will receive a thank you gift of a $20 gift card to Starbucks or Chapters, an NVCL Library Tote Bag, and an “I Imagined the Future: NVCL Library” button as a thank you for your time. You can sign up for a focus group at http://www.nvcl.ca  , or by emailing imaginethelibrary@cnv.org<mailto:imaginethelibrary@cnv.org>  , or by leaving a message with name and number at (604) 998-3453.

The library will be holding eight other focus group sessions with other members of the community, including parents of pre-school age children, and spots are available in these groups as well. These meetings will inform our strategic planning process and help us offer relevant services, programs and materials. 

If you can’t attend this event but would like to be involved, please check out these other focus groups, and fill out a survey to inform the library about what you would like to see in the future!
