Nearly 70 people attended the second community engagement meeting for the Park Grove Library building project on Monday, April 16.
Jennifer McMaster of HGA Architects gave a brief presentation at the start of the event, highlighting some of the major themes that have emerged as needs and wants for the new Park Grove Library. These themes were gathered from online and paper surveys, as well as comments from the first community engagement meeting in March.
After the presentation, attendees were encouraged to look at about 30 images of actual library spaces and provide feedback using stickers and Post-it notes. They were encouraged to consider whether the environmental quality of the spaces in each picture should be considered in the design of the new Park Grove Library.
Members of the architectural team, and library and county staff were also available to discuss questions and issues with individuals during the session.
The third spring community engagement meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 15 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the large meeting room at Park Grove Library, 7900 Hemingway Ave S., Cottage Grove. RSVP to the event on Facebook for reminders.
