Culture Perth and Kinross has launched a survey for local residents to share their views on what they its public places to look like after lockdown.
The organisation is working on plans for the operation of museums, libraries and archives when Scotland moves into phase three of the Scottish Government’s lockdown easing plans.
Andrew Wallace of Culture Perth and Kinross said: “As an organisation, we recognise that when we are able to reopen our doors once again, it will be in a very changed environment with some restrictions in place for all our visitors and users.
“To help us understand more about how local residents might feel about returning to our venues as the lockdown is eased, we have released a short survey.
“The gradual restoring of venue-based library services will involve the refocusing and repositioning of the service to meet the new challenges and opportunities of the post-COVID-19 world.
“We need to be able to ensure adherence to social distancing and public health guidance whilst also offering a welcoming and familiar environment which people want to visit.”
Extended delivery services, more online content, and providing a phone helpline for resource requests, deliveries and support in accessing the digital library service and collection materials are being considered
The survey will run until the end of this month, at which time Culture Perth and Kinross hopes to have further Scottish Government guidance on the reopening of public spaces.
The survey can be accessed and completed on Survey Monkey.
