You may attend any or all of the workshops. Pre-registration is not required. Light refreshments will be served. The agenda of each workshop will be the same, and will include:
1. A Community Briefing, including an update on what’s been happening since December 2009, the decisions that need to be made this year, and the process we’re proposing to make those decisions.
2. Interactive Discussion, where Library staff and Board members are looking to the community to share their priorities and perspectives.
Workshops will also be held in July and September as CLP moves through the process. At each workshop they will demonstrate how feedback from the Community Conversation has been considered as decisions are made.
