Subject: A chance to shape libraries-Libraries of the Future Public Forums

Come out and help us plan for our free library's future at the "Libraries of the Future" Public Forum on Wednesday, June 2nd, 6:15-8:30 at the John Perzel Community Center - 2990 St. VIncent St. 19149

You are invited to share your ideas and discuss a variety of subjects, such as how you use your library today, how these services can be improved  and your vision is for the future of the 54 branch Free Library system. 

These fun and friendly forums will be led by Jennifer Livingston Huber, organizational facilitator and founder of Shift LLC. Huber has assisted many local and national businesses and non-profits reach their goals by engaging audiences in focused conversation. "Participants will get to envision their ideal library and work together to create an actual image of their vision," said Huber.

"Our goal is to provide a positive and productive environment in which we can converse with our neighbors and turn the page on the public's view of library services," said Amy Dougherty, Director of the Friends of the Free Library of Philadelphia.  "By taking an active and progressive part in planning for the Free Library system's future, the public-at-large, along with our Friends Groups, become crucial participants in its future."
