Library seeking feedback through online survey

The Kennett Library Board of Trustees wants to know what area residents would like to see in a new library.

This past summer, the board received approval from the eight municipalities it serves – Kennett Square Borough and East Marlborough, Kennett, Newlin, New Garden, Pennsbury, Pocopson, and West Marlborough townships – to determine the feasibility of combining some borough functions with the library in one new building.

With partial funding through a Vision Partnership Program grant from Chester County, the board hired Lukmire Partnership, an architecture firm that specializes in building libraries, to assess the requirements for a new library building – including the efficacy of sharing space with the borough.

Part of that assessment process involves getting feedback from residents. Although most library users appear to agree that the library has outgrown its present location in the 200 block of East State Street in Kennett Square, opinions differ on what a new library should look like. To help the library in prioritizing its services and allocating resources as it moves forward with plans for a new building, all ideas are welcome, the board has said.
