Call for Applicants: Wolfville Library Review Group

Review Group Terms of Reference

Deadline: Friday, November 2nd, 2018 at 4:00PM

The Town of Wolfville and the Annapolis Valley Regional Library (AVRL) are investigating options for expanding and improving library facilities in Wolfville. This will be a comprehensive planning process that will determine the need for additional library space, opportunities to provide the required space at the existing library or a new location, program and service improvements, possible partnerships, costs and funding strategies. It is anticipated the study will take 6 - 8 months to complete.

The study will be managed by a Working Committee of Town and Library staff and volunteers with expertise in library planning. This Committee will report to Town Council and the AVRL Board, who are responsible for making all decisions with respect to the project. At key points in the planning process, public meetings will be held for community input. In addition to these public meetings, a Review Group will be established to comment on findings and directions emerging from the planning process.

Review Group membership will be by invitation. Approximately 12-15 individuals will be asked to sit on the Review Group . These individuals will be chosen to represent a cross-section of Wolfville and county residents and a variety of interests in the community. Members do not have to be users of the existing library or have any particular expertise in library planning.

The members of the Review Group will have the following duties.

• Meet with the Working Committee at key points in the study process. We anticipate 3 to 4 meetings over the 6-8 month planning period. Meetings will be held in the evening and last 2 – 3 hours.

• Consider background material provided by the Committee prior to each meeting. This material will describe research undertaken by the Committee and possible options for the library’s development. This material will be available at least 2 weeks prior to the Review Group meeting. Review Group members should expect to spend a few hours reading and considering this material. An agenda for the Review Group meeting and questions to consider prior to the session will be provided.

• Participate in Review Group meetings facilitated by the Working Committee to provide input to the planning process.

Review Group input is for the benefit of the Working Committee. We anticipate hearing a variety of perspectives that will inform the Working Committee’s analysis. There is no expectation of consensus and the Group will not be asked to provide direction as a group. The Group’s responsibilities do not include making formal recommendations to Town Council, the AVRL Board or the Working Committee.

The input of the Review Group will be summarized and documented as part of the planning process.

If you wish to be considered for the working group, please complete the online form by visiting the AVRL website here.

Forms must be completed by 4:00 pm on Friday, November 2nd, 2018.

2019 Concept - Wearing the Land

Curated by Bonnie Baker - https://bonniebakerstudio.com

UCA invites artists to develop temporary outdoor installations animated by the theme of Wearing the Land, expressing the idea of reciprocity between the landscape of King’s County, Nova Scotia, and the people who live there.  

People have passed through, lived in, and cultivated this region for millenniums. Our habits of movement wear paths and tracks along the land; sweeps of cultivated fields, flattened forest, shorelines reconstructed and waterways rerouted (or polluted) are the purposeful indications of ourselves on the landscape. We wear the land with the marks of our occupation, whether temporary or permanent, settler or original inhabitant, urbanite or rural dweller, capitalist or worker. 

Taking this notion a step further, you might say that in shaping the land, the land shapes us. How we occupy and move through a landscape impresses itself upon our imaginations, our minds, our identities as well as our bodies. 

In proposing the theme of Wearing the Land, UCA asks artists to consider the relationship between landscape and the people who inhabit it with a broad eye and, to paraphrase Robert MacFarlane, to think of it as the relationship between the landscape and the human heart.
