EL CERRITO -- The city is actively considering what it would take to build a new library and is asking for participation from the community, putting a survey online and scheduling a workshop for 7 p.m. Thursday at City Hall 10890 San Pablo Ave.
"We want to hear from the public about what they would like to see in a new library facility in El Cerrito," said Assistant City Manager, Karen Pinkos.
According to an announcement, "Based on community input in support of a new library, the city is in the process of developing a plan for a new library building, including identifying El Cerrito residents' priorities for the facility and pursuing funding options."
A community workshop led by Kathy Page, the city's consultant for the project, will discuss priorities on existing and possible new library services, as well as design aspects of a new building.
Those who can't attend the meeting or want to provide additional input can take the survey at www.el-cerrito.org/librarysurvey. Printed copies of the survey are also available at the library, 6510 Stockton Ave., at City Hall or by request via the mail. The survey will be open through Oct. 31.
