Statement of support for Junction East

The Greater Sudbury Public Library Board supports the Junction East project and welcomes library patrons and community members to take part in the Junction East Virtual Open House on July 21.

"The library provides social, health and economic benefits to the entire community of Greater Sudbury," explains Library Board Chair Michael Bellmore. "The New Central Library at Junction East will expand those benefits by expanding our audiences, enhancing accessibility, increasing our circulation of print, digital and 3D items, and supporting more partnerships with organizations that help the community."

The design process for Junction East has involved months of consultation with the architects and designers, partner agency staff and board members, stakeholder organizations and the community.

"It's been great working with WZMH and DPAI," says Library Board Chair Michael Bellmore. "The consultants really listen, and we can see our feedback reflected in the designs they've shared with us. This is our chance to let them know what we want to see in the new library so that it will best serve the needs of the community."
Bellmore hopes past, current and future library patrons will chime in with what they are hoping to see at the new library, both online and at the Open House. "This is the start of a new conversation with our patrons. GSPL is committed to supporting the community, and the best way for us to do that is by learning what the community wants."

The community can view the concept design and share their comments on Over to You (overtoyou.greatersudbury.ca) until July 30.
