New Central Library Functional Program Released

We’re excited to share the New Central Library Functional Program!

A functional program is a statement of needs that a building owner uses to inform the design consultant. It articulates the vision for the building and describes the types and sizes of spaces needed, how those spaces will be used, and the relationships between spaces.

The functional program for this project was informed by community input, library best practices, benchmarking, building codes, accessibility standards, the City of Saskatoon’s Plan for Growth, and SPL’s Strategic Plan.
