Save the date: Library wants your input on options for upgrading services

The Seattle Public Library is holding a community meeting next month to discuss improving library services, along with funding strategies to accomplish the needed improvements. The meeting is scheduled for Saturday, January 14, from noon until 2 p.m. at the Beacon Hill Library, 2821 Beacon Ave. S.

Community members at the meeting will hear about suggested options for improvements in four essential service areas: collections, library hours, computer access, and building maintenance. They will also learn about ideas for stabilizing library funding into the future. There will be an opportunity for public comment on the various options.

City Librarian Marcellus Turner and Library Board members will be in attendance to hear what the community has to say.
