August 19th was the last day for Westside residents to participate in our library services survey, and be entered into a random draw to win a $100 gift certificate from Save-On Foods. A big thank you goes out to everyone who has responded!
So far, over 450 responses have been collected and the confidential data will be valuable in shaping the future of library service in the Westside area.
In 2014, the ORL conducted an assessment on library usage in communities throughout its service area, and one of the key findings was that the growing Westside community is due for an increase in library services. While the West Kelowna branch in Westridge Mall has expanded in recent years, the ORL recognizes there are other ways to support the burgeoning area and is seeking input from local residents.
An online survey has been created for both ORL members and non-members to glean what types of programs and services would be most beneficial to those living on the Westside. The survey should take about five minutes to complete and is completely confidential. It can be found at: http://fluidsurveys.com/surveys/orl/westside-needs-assessment [the survey is now closed].
