WARWICK — Do you remember Warwick’s Commonplace?

Do you wonder what happened to it?

Those who do remember Warwick’s Commonplace as the place to exchange ideas, trade information and browse Warwick events.

It was a site open only to Town of Warwick residents and businesses and served as a meeting place, goods exchange and source of information about our schools, municipal activities and events.

Community members who used it were able to opt for daily or instantaneous notices.

As part of the Albert Wisner Public Library’s mission “to daily connect people to each other and the world,” it plans to host a new and improved Commonplace, with features that surpass those of the first version.

• The library will hold a focus group on Thursday, Oct. 29, at 7 p.m. in the Library’s Community Room to gather input as to what interested community members would like to see in the new Commonplace.

Commonplace developers, Mayor Michael Newhard and other community leaders will be on hand to hear ideas that will help shape this project.

“The Albert Wisner Public Library is a natural to take the lead in reviving such a worthwhile resource," Library Director Rosemary Cooper said, "We have long been the community’s favorite place to gather and Commonplace quickly became its favorite digital meeting place.”

• Space is limited at this session, so to attend this program please register online at www.albertwisnerlibrary.org or call 986-1047 ext. 3.
