Help Us Plan The Future
Long Range Planning Process Begins
The Library is your ticket to the world. Come help us map out our future.
The Board of Trustees have begun planning for the JBPL's next Long Range Plan. This plan will help them, and the staff, determine what the main priorities are for the community and how the library can best allocate resources to meet those needs.
Join us for two community meetings to be held at the Bourne United Methodist Church on Wednesday, January 28th and Wednesday, February 11th. Both meetings will be held from 10 a.m. til 12 p.m. The first meeting will help set the priorities of the community and how the library is currently set up. The second meeting will help set goals for the library and how to achieve them.
If you have any questions, please contact Library Director Patrick Marshall at 508-759-0644. We hope you will be able to attend these sessions. Come help shape where your library goes from here.
PLEASE NOTE: JANUARY 28TH MEETING HAS BEEN CANCELLED. FEBRUARY 11TH WILL BE NEW DATE FOR FIRST MEETING WITH A SECOND DATE TO BE DETERMINED.
