Library Focus Group - Participation Needed: The Library is assessing its services to families with young children in the community, and we want to know the best possible way to do so.  We would like to know what we can do in general to improve you and your children’s lives in the community. 

A focus group, to share your ideas and comments, will be held on Saturday, April 8th at 11:00 am and Tuesday, April 11th at 6:30 pm.  Each session will last about an hour, and light refreshments will be provided. 

For these focus groups, the library is especially interested in input from parents and grandparents of young children, and individuals who work with young children/families in our community.  The focus groups are part of Ready to Read a state-wide initiative designed to improve and expand the availability of public library early learning services.
