The Kaipara District Council has started investigating options around improving and expanding the current space of the Dargaville Library.
KDC communications manager Heidi Clark says it is an important task and that the council wants to “get it right.
“We will focus on getting it right by consulting the community as we know the library is an important service.”
To gain feedback the library has handed out a number of surveys at the fieldays and from their building as well as offering an online version.
So far over 250 surveys have been completed but library manager Lisa Salter wants to get as much feedback as possible.
“We are hoping to get information from a broad range of the community and we want to know what people in the community do and don’t want. Surveyors can also win a tablet which will give them access to digital library services including e-books,” she said.
So far feedback has suggested the need for an additional quiet space and an improved children’s area, they have also received a phenomenal amount of positive feedback on the services they are offering. A report including the survey findings will go forward to the KDC in May who in turn will give direction about whether the library can move to a bigger and more sustainable building.
