The Bellingham Public Library has initiated a study of city library services and has hired a consultant to undertake this study. Since 2005, the Cordata Neighborhood Association has advocated for a branch library in North Bellingham. This area is currently served by the downtown library and the library branch in Barkley Village.
North Bellingham is the fastest growing area in the city, and we feel that it is need of library services that are more easily accessible to children, teens, and adults. Having a branch library in North Bellingham would help meet this need. The consultant will be seeking feedback from the community in regard to current services and the possible need for additional services. We have not yet received specific information about how this study we will be conducted although it is likely it will be in the form of online surveys, community meetings or focus groups.

We will share additional information on how you can make your views heard as we learn more about the consultant's method of communication. If you would like more information about our neighborhood association or would like to become directly involved in the effort to make a branch library in North Bellingham a reality you can contact us through our web site at [select Contact and Support]

Having library services that are easily accessible will only enhance the quality for all of us in the North Bellingham neighborhoods. We look forward to your support.
