Community Needs Survey


Community Needs Survey

What do YOU want at the Barrie Public Library? We want to hear from you!
We’re beginning the process of envisioning what a 21st Century library service and facility should look like for the community of Barrie. We’re starting by reaching out to you about what you want in a library and how to make the library as useful as possible to the residents, students, and businesses in Barrie.
If you have a moment, please fill out our survey: The survey will take 10-12 minutes to complete and is open until September 5.
Bonus! If you'd like to be entered into a draw for a prize of an iPad Mini, Bluetooth Speaker, or a Chapters Gift Card, please share your email address with us in the last question.  
Thank you all so very much for your help and for your continued support of the library!
