Ridgewood NJ according to Steve Kim on the Facebook page ,” It Takes a Ridgewood Village” Kim points out that in Library minutes excerpts from 2015 there is no mention of user survey. The library went straight to architects and Gisolfi was chosen. What are the chances they back up and incorporate resident input?
The HS library was “re-imagined ” a few years ago.
Library has stats on how many people use their facilities. They should do a survey by an impartial outside company. How many RESIDENTS use the library each month? Each year? How many RESIDENTS have not used the library in the last month, in the last year? Their current numbers seem high. I wonder if they counted people walking through the door, using the bathroom, attending a children’s piano recital, browsing, checking out material, returning material, using conference rooms …. I need to see the survey.
I do not know many people who go to the library anymore. I have access to an online University Library. I also have a Kindle. I have driven through the parking lot and found no spots available while attempting a visit to Village Hall.
I thought the Elks Club was for the water department.
