Last month, we shared that Etna is participating in a study about how to bring library service to the community. Please join us for two public meetings as we envision a shared community library system for Etna, Millvale, and Sharpsburg. With the help of the Allegheny County Library Association, Triboro Ecodistrict, The Forbes Funds, and Fourth Economy Consultants, we are exploring what a shared system might look like and we need your input!
These public meetings, though virtual, will be interactive, collaborative, and focused on creating a shared vision for a library. During these two-hour sessions, you will be able to provide feedback on several scenarios regarding the guiding vision, programming, governance, and even naming of this prospective community asset. We will use Zoom, and a free software called meetingsphere, to engage in collective brainstorming. Help shape the future of libraries in our communities!
