New facility planned for downtown Newhall open to suggestions from citizens.
The city of Santa Clarita is looking for community input on the new library planned for downtown Newhall.
The new stacks will be built as part of the Newhall Redevelopment project at the end of Main Street. The online survey (which can be downloaded, printed and passed around to friends and neighbors) is available for residents to express their wants and wishes for the facility.
City Engineer Chris Price said the survey will help prioritize amenities such as computers, children’s areas, research stacks or even provide meeting rooms. He told KHTS that newer libraries often provide meeting places for community groups at little or no cost. He added that the survey will also assess the region’s need for computers and internet access, something that the city libraries provide on a limited basis.
The city also wants to know if people don’t go to the library – is it because of the distance or do they prefer buying their own books or has the need for a library been replaced by home computers. This information will help them design a community building that will meet the needs and uses required by residents and visitors to the Newhall area.
