Community Conversations with the City Librarian

The public is invited to discuss current and future Library services with City Librarian Marcellus Turner at a series of “Community Conversations” beginning this fall. Turner will also provide an update on implementation of the Library levy, approved by Seattle voters in August 2012.

The Seattle Public Library provides many resources both at branch libraries and online.  However, there may be other programs, resources, books or materials that would more effectively support our neighborhoods. To learn more about how the Library can better serve the community, the City Librarian will be hosting 12 Community Conversations around the city. (You can find the full schedule here.)library image

City Librarian Turner is particularly interested in hearing from patrons on five Library service priorities: Youth and early learning; technology and access; community engagement; Seattle culture and history; and re-imagined spaces.
