If your social calendar happens to be lacking in appointments this evening, why not head on over to CLP-Main at 6:30 PM in the Lecture Hall for Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s Annual Meeting (open to the public) with library staff and the Board of Trustees. This is a great opportunity to not only show support for the library, but also to have a chance to hear about the current, and future, state of the library system, its services, collections, and programs.
Anyone who wants to ask questions or make comments tonight had to register by 5:00 PM yesterday, so if you’re only discovering this now it is a tad late to do so. However, once the registered speakers are through, and if there is time, there will be an open question/comment period.
Interested in the kinds of things you’re likely to hear discussed? Check out this recent PG article about where CLP placed in a recent national study, and this Huffington Post piece about the current state of urban libraries in general.
Still want to be involved, but can’t make the meeting? Submit your responses to the discussion guide on the CLP website by March 31 and your input will be included in the development of the library’s next five-year strategic plan.
Hey, it’s your library too. Take this chance to let the people in charge know how much the library means to you and that you’re invested in it now and for the future.
