Focus Groups #4

Focus Groups #4: Teens & Young Adults

Wednesday, July 27

7:00-8:30 PM

Where can you have a discussion in which there are NO right or wrong answers and every opinion is valued? HERE!

As we update our vision and strategic plan for the library, we need opinions from teens, parents, and other adults on how our library can remain relevant and interesting and meet your needs for the next decade.

What programs shall we offer? What collections should be available? How can we better use technology to help you find the information you seek? How can we be an even more inviting and comfortable meeting place?

Grab your friends and join us for this discussion to share your thoughts!

Call 624-6067 to register.
