Space Planning Study

The Welles-Turner Library is undergoing a space planning study to determine how to best utilize existing space to provide 21st Century library programs and services. Part of this process includes seeking input from our users. One of the methods we are using is Mindmixer, a social media program designed to help municipalities engage citizens in the planning process. It is also a way for library staff to communicate with the public on the status of the project. Staff will be posting questions and polls throughout the next month, so visit the web site frequently and weigh in.
