Library Town Hall Meetings Wrap Up for 2017

Join us November 28th and 30th! 

Ever since Robert F. Lambert took the helm as York County Libraries President in 2016, he has taken time to visit libraries across the county to hold Library Town Halls.  His intent is to hold community conversations to understand and be responsive to the library service needs of York County residents.  This month he is wrapping up the final Library Town Hall series for 2017 when he heads to Dover Area Community Library at 7 p.m. Tuesday, November 28 and Paul Smith Library of Southern York County at 7 p.m. Thursday, November 30.  According to Robert, the key objectives of the YCL strategic plan are an outgrowth of the initial Library Town Hall meetings he held during the third and fourth quarters of 2016.

“We took what I learned from a series of conversations with community members, library cardholders, library board members, friends and staff, to help shape and prioritize goals included in the York County Libraries 2017 – 2019 Strategic Plan,” explains Robert.  “We have made definitive strides within several objectives, and I am looking forward to sharing the progress with community members this month.” 

The core initiatives include Salem Square Library, outreach to older adults, 1000 Books Before Kindergarten, a Graduating Adult High School Diploma program, marketing and communications, outreach to teens, and a countywide capital campaign.  The meetings are open to everyone and are free to attend.  There is also ample free parking in close proximity to both libraries.
