The City is conducting a study of the Civic Center Library to better support our community.  Based on feedback from community focus groups, a survey and KidsFest, three concepts have been created:

OPTION 1: Café, performance space and meeting spaces make the library a great place for open mic night, book club meetings and a cup of coffee

OPTION 2: Labs and meeting spaces support STEAM education, paint classes and learning

OPTION 3: Active kids play areas, quiet reading rooms and classrooms for yoga and cooking classes offer wellness for the mind, body and spirit.

Please take a moment and tell us what you think about the concepts.
