Public Libraries Interest Group Meeting (3/21/18)

We are so fortunate to be involved in libraries at a time of such rapid paced change.  Not only is there a shift in public perception of libraries on a global scale, but libraries themselves are regularly evaluating their role in their communities. The good news is, public libraries are in hub of all the activity!  Communication and networking are vital components for staying abreast of what is happening and helping to make positive changes.  This group will facilitate an opportunity to talk, share, rejoice and even commiserate about current activities within public libraries in Northeast Florida.  We need your voice.  Join us.

The first meeting of 2018 will take place at the Cone Park Branch Library in Gainesville on Wednesday, March 21st, from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm.  We look forward to seeing you there!
