This spring, we’re partnering with Mayor Nutter and the Friends of the Free Library to host a series of public forums on “Libraries of the Future.” These forums, which are being held in neighborhoods across Philadelphia, were designed to uncover the needs of our city’s communities and to plan for the evolving role of the Free Library in the 21st century.
We’re excited to hear back from Philadelphians about their thoughts on a variety of subjects, including how they use their library today and what their vision is for the future of our great Free Library system.
These forums are open to the public, so head to a location near you and get involved! Forums dates and locations are:
Wednesday, May 12, at 6:15 p.m.
