The Seattle Public Library is holding three community meetings in January with the goal of improving library services. The meetings will focus on how to enhance its collection of books and materials, increase operating hours, upgrade computers and online services and improve building maintenance. Funding will also be on the agenda.
The meeting at the Ballard Library (5614 22nd Ave NW) is Wednesday, January 18th from 6 to 8 p.m. The other two meetings are January 7th from 10 a.m. to noon at the Central Library (1000 Fourth Ave) and January 14th from noon to 2 p.m. at the Beacon Hill branch (Beacon Ave S.)
“With the 1998 Libraries for All building renewal program, we made sure our Library facilities were up-to-date and able to support Library programs and users,” Library Board President Marie McCaffrey said in a press release. “Now we are entering the next phase of bringing the Libraries for All vision to life – extending our reach through improved operating hours, books and materials available in different formats and expanded digital access.”
