Letters: Library wants your input

Series of community meetings coming to Sooke and Port Renfrew

Your library is hosting public community consultation sessions in your area.

The entire community is invited to join Vancouver Island Regional Library for a two-hour session at their local branch, or designated facility if space is limited, to provide feedback into VIRL’s next five-year Strategic Plan.

Please help communicate these valuable sessions in the community to ensure that everyone has a chance to participate in the decisions that will take their local library from good to great.

For more information about these sessions, or the public survey available online, please feel free to contact me or visit virl.bc.ca. The public can also inquire at their local branch for more information.

Sessions in the Sooke region:

Port Renfrew Library Branch July 15, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Port Renfrew Community Hall.

Sooke Library Branch July 29, 6:30-8:30 p.m. Sooke Family Resource Society 6672 Wadams Way.
