Tuesday, June 18 at 5:00 pm

On June 18, 2019, we invite you to join us in Glover Park at 4:30 for food, socialization and activities as we begin our community discussions for our building project. We want you to be informed and involved while we make decisions for the future of our community library. The presentation will begin at 5:00 in the City Council Chambers, “What do you want the library to do?”. The StudioGC team will provide an overview of how our library compares to others as well as opportunities of additional library services in a larger space. Following the presentation, we will be asking for your ideas and feedback. If you are unable to attend this session, it will be recorded and material will be available after.

In July, we will be using that information as part of the next discussion, “Where do we want this library to be?” We encourage you to partake in the series of presentations, provide feedback and show your support.
