Strategic Planning Focus Groups

Coquitlam Public Library is working with Roots & Rivers Consulting to develop a strategy that will help guide us for the next three years. We need your input to make sure this new strategy reflects the needs and interests of our community.

We invite you to participate in an upcoming focus group to share your perspectives and ideas. Please choose the focus group topic that interests you the most.

Share any access needs you have with Hayley, hayley@rootsandrivers.ca.
