I teach out in Caldwell, so my comment may not apply to one specific branch, but I would love to see more outreach from the library to connect with rural schools. My students don't have access to a great library on campus, and not all of their parents might think it's in their best interest to take family trips to the library. It would be great to see libraries reaching out to the parts of the community that are typically underserved. As far as the downtown space goes, I would love to see it used for young adult writers to do meet and greets. We need to get our youth more excited about reading because we are so stagnant in our reading scores according to the National Report Card. We can't expect those scores to go up if our students/youth don't care about reading!

I need more information to decide

I mean it is next to the greenbelt and river. However, I do not see how the design concept came from that at all. It is a very modern design. Can't say it's the most beautiful thing I have ever seen, but I like the idea of making it modular with the different sections. Also, huge fan of the rooftop garden, that would be nice to have overlooking the river for sure.

Well, I'm pro-literacy, so I definitely will use it for borrowing books... Depending on what sorts of events or classes are offered at the new space, I will attend those as well. I am also starting a Master's program through BSU, so it might be nice to use the library as a work space where I don't have to buy a parking permit for BSU... Love the parking lot expansion for the downtown library. I can see it possibly being misused, maybe there could be a validation program set up for it?

Since I moved away from the downtown area, I will use it less frequently than the branch by my house, but since the new library will have those other multipurpose sections, I will try to make more frequent visits.

A slide, like the one at JUMP, but it should be open for more than two hours a week. That's a very selfish and personal wish, but I'm thinking big picture here people! If you want it to be a gateway to Boise, add a slide! :)
