Tell the library how it can improve services

January 3rd, 2012 by Doree

The Seattle Public Library is holding three community meetings in January about 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 first two meetings are downtown at the Central Library and at the Beacon Hill Branch. The third meeting is nearby, from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18, at the Ballard Branch, 5614 22nd Ave. N.W. (206-684-4089).

“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.”
