Since May, the Carnegie Library has been holding community workshops to engage those it serves on how best to preserve and sustain its future success. The third part of this three-part process happens in September. You can read summaries of part one here, and part two here.
These final workshops will gather community input on strategies the library developed after the first two workshops. The library is encouraging everyone to attend, including those who did not participate in the first two sets of workshops. For more information on the Community Conversation, visit the library’s website, here.
Although the Northside is not losing any libraries, hours and staff are affected by budget cuts and shortfalls. We will have more coverage on this important issue later in September.
