With individual surveys completed a Grand Forks Library working group is turning its attention towards focus and community organizations as it collects input on what residents would like to see in a new revamped building. The group is looking at statistics and trends of what is happening in other communities as well as identifying available resources for improving the library. Studies suggest the current 42 year old building is outdated. Library Board President Biran Schill says the goal is to try and take the emotional side out of the debate. Over 700 individual surveys were filled out. Schill says he would expect the data and group recommendations to be forwarded to the full board in September.
