Public invited to dream a perfect library

The Lexington Public Library will hold a series of community meetings this month to receive input into the library’s new strategic plan.

Ann Hammond, the library’s executive director, will lead discussions at each of the system’s six locations. The schedule is:

▪ Eagle Creek Branch: 7 p.m. Tuesday, and noon Wednesday.

▪ Village Branch: 6 p.m. Thursday.

▪ Northside Branch: 2 p.m. Sunday.

▪ Tates Creek Branch: 6 p.m. Jan. 19.

▪ Central Library: 11 a.m. Jan. 20 and 3 p.m. Jan. 30.

▪ Beaumont Branch: 2 p.m. Jan. 24, and 3 p.m. Jan. 26.

No reservation is required to attend the public meetings. For more information, go to Lexpublib.org/community-meetings.

The library’s current five-year strategic plan comes to an end this summer. It has resulted in a number of new programs, including online magazine checkout, the lexpublib2go mobile app, the Storytime-to-go traveling RV, Book-A-Librarian and Your Next Chapter, as well as facility renovations and improvements culminating with the opening of the new Eastside Branch in March.
