Residents can access the survey online in English or Spanish. The survey closes Feb. 28. Those surveyed can also volunteer for virtual focus groups about the new library, according to the city.
The 40,000-square-foot, multistory library will be about 57% larger than the existing city library, according to the city, and feature an outdoor area for library and nonlibrary events. City Council approved a $3.11 million design agreement with Lake Flato Architects in December. Cedar Park voters approved a bond proposition to fund the new library in 2015.
The public library reached its 40th anniversary in January. It first opened at the Cedar Park Plaza Shopping Center in 1981 and moved to a remodeled laundromat later in the year, according to the city. The library moved to its current location in 1990 and expanded in 2001.
The library is part of the Bell Boulevard Redevelopment Project's first phase. Phase 1 also includes a social hub, two blocks of restaurants and shops, a park, a greenbelt and district parking. Phase 1 will begin after the completion of the Bell Boulevard road realignment.
