Thank you to everyone who participated in the Kingston Frontenac Public Library’s community engagement process to assist with the development of a new patron code of conduct.
About the Engagement Process
The engagement process included three different activities:
- Interviews with a variety of community organizations, including health and service agencies, neighbourhood associations, and organizations working with vulnerable populations.
- A public workshop, which was hosted on May 5th at the Spire. The slides presented at the workshop can be downloaded here.
- A community survey was available online and in print at local branches. It closed on June 10th.
The information collected throughout this engagement process is in the summary report available here.
The engagement process was designed and led by MASS LBP. MASS LBP compiled the data and wrote the final report.
In the fall of this year a committee of library staff members, including union and joint health and safety committee representatives, will review the results of the community engagement process as well as best practices from public libraries and other organizations to write a draft code of conduct.
The draft code will be made available for community and staff members for review and comment in the winter of 2019. The draft code will then be brought to the Library Board for approval.
