What do Fairfax County residents want to see at their local library? The answer to that question will be revealed during a public meeting next week.

Consultants hired by the Library Board of Trustees are slated to reveal the findings of a recent public engagement project during a meeting at the Fairfax County Government Center (12000 Government Center Parkway) on Wednesday, Sept. 7 at 6 p.m.

The public engagement project, which began last December, collected input regarding “perceptions about the library; the types of services that will meet current and future community needs, interests and concerns; and how the library can better communicate its value to the residents of Fairfax County,” according to officials. County residents provided feedback through telephone and online surveys, community forums, focus groups and interviews.

The meeting will include time for attendees to speak or ask questions about the initiative and its findings.

For those who can’t make it to the meeting, the program will be streamed live and televised on Fairfax County Government Channel 16.

    Opt-in social media app claims Trump will win the U.S. Presidency in November, with 64% of the vote. And it’s free!

    The “election officials” might as well just stay home.

    Here’s a good idea: To enhance the library experience, let’s rid the entrance of panhandlers, the restrooms of homeless taking baths in the sinks, and the vagrants sleeping in the bus shelters – all of which present a horrid gauntlet to those of us wishing to utilize a resource WE pay for.
