Comments about library can help meet future community needs

This month attend one of 16 public meetings in Pierce County and hear proposed improvements and give comments on recommendations for how Pierce County Library System can best meet future community needs.

For the past several months, the Library has been gathering ideas and opinions from thousands of people about community needs in the next 20 plus years, and how the Library can plan for and deliver quality services in contemporary, convenient locations to help meet those needs. This community input has been combined with an assessment of current library services and buildings, information about future growth trends, and best practices from successful libraries to complete the study of future needs and form draft recommendations to help meet those needs. The Library wants the public to comment on the resulting draft recommendations for how it can best meet future community needs.
