Dear friends of the French Language Children’s Collection,
I hope this finds you well. If you are receiving this it is because you expressed interest in the Vancouver Public Library’s public consultations on our French children’s collection this past Fall. At that time there was considerable interest expressed in French children’s magazines. Accordingly, we requested and received a number of samples and we are again seeking your input into which of these we should purchase for our children’s collection. Starting today, Friday 23 May, they will be available for you to peruse in the children’s French collections area of the Kitsilano Branch Library http://www.vpl.ca/branches/details/kitsilano_branch . You will be able to indicate which magazines you like best by sticking dots on them (exactly as you did at the Focus Group events). The magazines will remain there for two weeks, until Friday 6 June. After that, our Selections Division will assess them in terms of their popularity, and some will be centrally ordered for various branches (likely appearing there in several months time). They are really very attractive publications, so I hope you will enjoy the opportunity to look them over. And if you know others who might be interested in participating in this event at the Kitsilano Branch, please let them know.
Thank you very much again for your participation in our consultations process. You have no doubt seen many of the books you selected on our shelves; your choices have made an impact on our book collection, and we look forward to using your input again in this format area.
