Community Conversations

We are hosting a Community Conversation at the library from 1-3 p.m. on Sunday, September 27. This conversation is one of several that we will be having with people across the community. Each one is a chance for us to better understand people’s aspirations for the community, the concerns they have and what they believe might make a difference in strengthening the community. While we can’t promise that any new initiatives or programs will emerge from these conversations, we will get back to you and share what we learned, and how it can help make our work in the community more effective. We hope that you will be able to join us. Please RSVP to Dianne or Ann at 903.786.8274 so we can be sure to have enough refreshments on hand. For more information please do not hesitate to contact us.
