New Mississauga Library website

By Events, Issues, Uncategorized

June 25, 2019

Today, we reached a milestone in the Digital Modernization Initiative and launched the new Mississauga Library website to the public. Following months of design, planning, and testing, staff activated the site smoothly today at 10:00 am, without any problems or disruptions to services.

We created the site by using public input to improve our work, and by following our new Digital Service Standard. Our goal was to make the site accessible and easier to use by creating better search, clear navigation, and simplified content. The site works on a wide range of devices: mobile, tablet, and desktop.

We will continue to measure and improve our work in the following ways:

  • Each page of the new Library site features a feedback button for customers to report problems directly to staff
  • We have implemented a quality assurance dashboard, which will monitor continuously for any errors
  • We are introducing a new customer satisfaction tool this year, to help us understand people’s ever-shifting needs as we continue to evolve the site

The site was developed through a collaborative effort between the Strategic Communications, IT, and Mississauga Library teams. Led by the library’s Master Plan, Future Directions, the site helps move towards the goals of bridging the digital divide, ensuring barrier free access to technology and continuing to invest in a 24/7 virtual branch.

Should you require any additional information please let me know.

City is making Mississauga’s waterfront more inclusive and accessible

By Events, Issues, Resources

In an effort to remove and prevent barriers for persons with disabilities, the City is making Mississauga’s waterfront more inclusive and accessible for all with the Accessible Beach Routes pilot project.  Accessible Beach Routes will roll out at Lakefront Promenade and Jack Darling Memorial Park on July 1, 2019, weather permitting.

Accessible beach mats provide a nonslip, accessible surface and allows individuals with mobility aids, such as wheelchairs and walkers, older adults and parents with strollers, easier to access to the beach.

Parks Operations staff will install the mats and directional signage at both park locations.  The mats are secured in place with pins, allowing for easy maintenance without requiring the mats to be removed or the facility closed for an extended period of time.  The beach access route will remain in place for the season and the mats will be removed annually in the fall and over winter.

If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.


Try an eBike during the Tactical Urbanism Pilot

By Events, Issues, Resources
​Starting June 7, things will look a little different on Living Arts Drive the street between Princess Royal Drive and City Centre Drive. A range of temporary urban features will be installed as part of the Tactical Urbanism pilot, designed to improve safety and public enjoyment of our city streets.

Click here for more details.

Sign up for your opportunity during your lunch break to try out a Bosch eBike during this pilot project. The eBikes can run on electric power as well as by pedaling, and will be available from June 10 to June 14 from noon to 2 p.m. The motor can shore up your pedaling as needed and can make it easier to go uphill or ride for long distances.

This eBike trial is open only to City of Mississauga employees and not for members of the public. The eBikes will be located at the northwest corner of Princess Royal Drive and Living Arts Drive.

Take advantage of this opportunity by registering online and signing a waiver prior to your session. Spaces are limited! You will also need to bring your own helmet in order to participate.
