I suggest the City ...

Free parking at library

Library is a place for kids and people to learn stuff. Most of the city, such as Markham, Richmond Hill, Vaughan has the library in the community centre, parking is free. Even some of the individual library in different cities are also FREE PARKING.

We hope Barrie could have free parking for Library before set up library in the community centre.

Make people like Library, it is good for our kids for our city, it is also good for our future.

        I agree. I was shocked The first time I went to the library and discovered I had to pay to park! It is a terrible policy and one that sure doesn't encourage individuals and families to use it!!

        Hi Francine, it is good idea, if people go to the library to read books, and when they left, they could ask a token from the reception of library.

        Since we all need library cards to belong to the library perhaps they could be made to work so if you are going to the library you could use your library card to get into free parking.

        It's obvious that the library lot would just be full of downtown workers and shoppers and wouldn't have room for people parking at the library. This is a bad idea as long as our Library is in the city centre.

        It's free after 5pm and on weekends, and even during the day the main lot can get pretty full.

        Even shoppers or visitors take advantages, they are going to love the city and love the government, the longer they stay, more money they will spend, it will contribute more to our city. Why not have a try?

        But what happens when downtown shoppers or visitors take advantage of the free parking for non library related things?
