How do you use the library? Check out books? Sleeping? Reading?
Planners with the Chattanooga Public Library are in the process of creating a new vision for the Eastgate Branch and they need your help.
The public is invited to give input via a brief online survey through Oct. 20. The focus is on library programming and use. Additionally, planners are seeking ideas on what kinds of services the community would like to see provided in the new building.
In 2009, data was gathered for a master plan for revitalizing the Brainerd Corridor. “Brainerd: A Vision for Today” was submitted during former Mayor Ron Littlefield’s administrations, under the direction of District 6 Councilwoman Carol Berz.
After the survey data is collected, the project can move into the design phase. Library officials think new input will give the planners and designers a great start on how to design and program the new Eastgate Public Library.
In February, a group called the Midtown Council launched the Midtown Campaign, designed to enrich, enlighten and energize the Brainerd community. The campaign includes an allocation of more scenic streetscapes and passive green spaces. The Eastgate Town Center—which includes the library—is also expected to undergo major renovations.
The campaign also includes a change of name for the area from “Brainerd Corridor” to, simply, Midtown.
Individuals who wish to fill out out a printed survey can do so at the Eastgate branch during regular library hours.
