A.B.C. TO EXPLORE WHAT’S AHEAD FOR BERWYN PUBLIC LIBRARY?
Opinions on current Berwyn Public Library services and future needs will be explored at the All Berwyn Committee meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 13, in Berwyn City Hall, 6700 W. 26th St.
John Chrastka, vice president of the Berwyn Public Library Board and Strategic Planning Committee chair, will report on the results of a recent survey soliciting A.B.C. members’ views on library services. Then he will explain how those views will be incorporated in a long-range plan for the library. Friends of the Berwyn Public Library and library staff will detail programming innovations already underway.
“The All Berwyn Committee historically has served as a forum for exploring library needs,” noted Susan Anderson, A.B.C. president. “We welcome this opportunity to renew this relationship, and we know residents throughout the community will want to take advantage of this opportunity to express their opinions on this important city service.”
