    FMP Draft

    Brampton Library has completed a draft of the Library Facilities Master Plan (FMP), a blueprint that guides how the City of Brampton and Brampton Library invest in library space found through existing branches and the construction of new ones. The FMP offers a renewed vision for library development in Brampton and a refreshed implementation strategy that charts the course for the next 10 years. Extensive consultation was undertaken for the FMP through a community survey, focus groups, workshops and key informant interviews.

    Since the adoption of Brampton Library's previous FMP in 2011, major capital investments have been made in three new branches found in Gore Meadows, Springdale and South West, along with a major renovation of the Chinguacousy branch and the installation of three MakerSpaces. With Brampton's population expected to grow from 698,000 to 854,000 over the next 10 years, proactive facility planning is essential for Brampton Library to effectively deliver on its mandate to serve the needs of existing residents along with the 156,000 new residents that are forecasted to be added by 2031.

    The FMP contains recommendations to address improvements to spaces within existing branches as well as the development of a Central Library and new branches to serve existing and future residents of Brampton. 

    We are seeking your feedback on the draft FMP prior to its finalization. Complete the survey here. The deadline for submitting feedback is November 30, 2021. Should you have any additional comments, please email us at FMP@bramlib.on.ca.
