Public invited to attend 'Community Conversations' to discuss future library services

Community Conversations

The public is invited to discuss current and future Library services with City Librarian Marcellus Turner at a series of "Community Conversations" beginning this fall. Turner will also provide an update on implementation of the Library levy, approved by Seattle voters in August 2012.

 

"I'm looking forward to talking with patrons about what the Library can do to serve them better and to share our progress on the levy," Turner said.

 

Turner is particularly interested in hearing from patrons on five Library service priorities: Youth and early learning; technology access; community engagement; Seattle culture and history; and re-imagined spaces.

 

Library Board members and Library staff will also be present to hear what the public has to say and to answer questions. Everyone is welcome. Light refreshments will be served.
