Community Conversations @ Bellingham Public Library
Apr 2 @ 10:15 am – 12:00 pm

What do you care about? Libraries can help. Join us to talk about your aspirations for our community and how we can work together to strengthen it. We are hosting meetings this spring as part of planning for the library’s future. Each 90-minute group “Community Conversation” is a chance for us to better understand people’s hopes for their community, the concerns they have, and what they believe might make a difference. Our goal is to gather public knowledge, then determine where the library can help, as part of our strategic plan. Please join us for a conversation — this is a rewarding way to meet other community members and contribute your ideas. More details about the project at bellinghampubliclibrary.org. For questions about these meetings, contact Janice Keller, 360-778-7206 or jkeller@cob.org .
