The Florida Public Library is developing a new long range plan to guide us for the next five years and we invite your participation or that of a representative of your organization.
The plan will help us determine what programs and services, technology, physical space and staffing Florida residents, taxpayers and business people expect and need for their public library.
We will begin our planning process with a series of focus group meetings for the public which will be led by Library Trustee Diane Arcieri. We are interested in hearing from both Library users and non-users.
We invite you to attend one of our meetings on the following dates:
Friday, Sept. 20, 9:30 a.m. to noon.
Monday, Sept., 23, 6 to 8:30 p.m.
Tuesday, Oct. 1, 7 to 9:30 p.m.
Sunday, Oct. 20, 1 to 3:30 p.m.
