Speaking Volumes: Where to put a new library? Come Dec. 19 and tell us
by Nick Shimmin, WB Public Library · Op-Ed · December 14, 2012

First, on behalf of everyone at the West Branch Public Library, I want to wish everyone Happy Holidays and to thank you all for making 2012 an amazing year at the library!
And, don’t forget to join us for our special Santa Storytime on Dec. 18 at 7 p.m.!

Second, the library would like to invite you to the second meeting to discuss the future of the library’s location on Dec. 19 at 7 p.m. at the City Office Council Chambers.

The library is looking for the best opportunity to serve our community in the many years to come and we need your input. Can we improve our service by being more visible? Should we prepare for the town to expand to the west? Can we make it more convenient for you to visit us?

These are just a few of the questions we’re looking at and we hope to see you there!
