At the next NDDC Downtown Forum on Feb. 7, we’ll be discussing the public library — in particular the value it brings to downtown and what downtown stakeholders want from the library. Director Lynne Young will be our guest for a Downtown Forum that will take a slightly different shape this month. Lynne is in the midst of a strategic planning process for the public library, and she will bring along one of her consultants, Jan Feye-Stukas, to moderate a discussion about the future of this precious resource. Together, Lynne and Jan will lead the Downtown Forum participants through a moderated focus group about the public library: its future, its space needs, what it does well, what it could do better, what it offers downtown. Please join us for a lively discussion — and bring along a friend or neighbor who loves to read.
As usual, the NDDC Downtown Forum will be held the first Tuesday of the month (Feb. 7) at 8 a.m. at the Archer House lower-level conference room. Coffee and cookies will be provided. See you there.
