GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Libraries are changing and the Grand Island Public Library wants to hear what resources you want and need so they can better serve the community.

The library board is inviting Hall County residents to join them in a discussion about current and future Library services at a series of “Community Conversations.” This is part of the Library’s Strategic Plan.

Over the last year, the library launched new services in an effort to continue to reach patrons — especially during the early days of the pandemic — as the world grappled with uncertain and ever-changing information.

As they plan for the future of the library, they want your feedback to improve the resources and services offered.

During the community conversations, they will be asking questions like:

· What kind of events, classes, workshops, or activities would you like to see at the Library?

· Are there materials or services you wish the Library would offer?

· Is there something you would like to see offered on the Library’s website?

Library staff want to ensure that the work they do as a library in the local community, in their building, and with their community partners is in alignment with the community’s dreams and needs.

Community Conversation Sessions

Sunday, September 26: 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Tuesday, October 5: 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.

Thursday, October 14: 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Saturday, October 23: 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

All Community Conversations will be held at the Library in Meeting Room BC. Everyone is invited to attend.
