Your Library wants to hear from you

Nelson Public Library wants to hear from everyone it serves through an online survey.


Everyone who completes the survey will be entered into a draw for great prizes:

  • a three-month pass for free parking anywhere in Nelson
  • tickets for Kokanee Mountain Zipline
  • Whitewater Ski Resort day tickets
  • Capitol Theatre tickets for the production of Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery
  • two pairs of tickets to the Civic Theatre
  • colouring books from Otter Books
  • Wildwood yoga passes

Help the Library make decisions about its collections, the right balance between traditional books and online resources; how  best to use the facility’s existing space; and what programs and services are most relevant.

Everyone is encouraged to take the survey.

The deadline for completion is Friday, October 28
