“It’s important to examine our services and resources periodically to know how to best serve our community,” said Library Director Starr LaTronica in a news release. “The public’s voice is essential in determining our direction and our priorities as we embark on formulating a new plan of service. The library is here for everyone, and we want to be sure that we hear the hopes, wishes, dreams, and needs of our users and our potential users. This is an opportunity to weigh in on what works well at the library, what can be improved and even entertain some big ideas for the future.”
