Subject: Rosemount Library – update on consultation including online component

Dear community associations supportive of Rosemount Library,

A quick update on the Rosemount Library consultation process:
We had approximately 100 participants in the first consultation round. There was fantastic discussion at the round tables with many many ideas discussed — lots of room for all voices to be heard and recorded through the process. The facilitator focused conversation around Rosemount Library’s current strengths and assets, ideas on how Rosemount Library could be event better, and then there was some discussion on priorities.

Next steps:
We are getting close to the second round of consultation + we have an online option for library users to engage with the process. After those are complete, the consultant will be writing his report which will be presented to the OPL Board later this spring.

Your help within the next few weeks:
If you have the appropriate email/facebook/twitter/website/other channels, please consider promoting the information below. In particular, the online questionnaire is NEW information that your association members will have not seen before.

With much thanks,
Emily Addison
