Public has opportunity to contribute ideas to library
Community members who missed Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh's recent strategic planning workshop, still have two ways to contribute ideas about the library's future direction.
In Part Two of the library's three-part planning process, "The Library & You, Listening, Learning, Leading Together" participants can meet with library board members and staff in any of six neighborhood workshops or provide input via an online survey (www.carnegielibrary.org/plan).
The interactive workshops are open to all ages. Past participants and newcomers to the process are welcome. Residents may attend any session no matter where they live. Sessions in and near the South Pittsburgh area include:
Tuesday, May 15 from 6 – 7:30 p.m. at CLP – Downtown and Business, 612 Smithfield Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222.
Thursday, May 17 from 6 – 7:30 p.m. at CLP – Knoxville, 400 Brownsville Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15210.
Tuesday, May 22 from 6 – 7:30 p.m. at CLP – West End, 47 Wabash Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15220.
The first round of strategic planning discussions, held in February and March, explored opportunities for the Library in four core areas: The Library in the City; The Future of Libraries; Library Funding and Fundraising; and Connecting with our Community. More than 150 community leaders and residents contributed feedback during the first part of the process. Based on the input from these discussions, the library has begun to formulate a vision for the next five years.
In addition to the neighborhood workshops, public input on the library's strategic plan may be provided in person at any Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh location or online at www.carnegielibrary.org/plan. All feedback received by May 31, will be included in a summary, which will be posted on the library's website in mid-June.
