On behalf of the Desmond-Fish Library’s board and all of us on the staff, thank you so much to everyone who came out to support the library in last week’s referendum vote! We cannot express how much we appreciate your investment in the future of the library.
This process brought many of our patrons in to express their ideas and questions about the library. The unifying theme in all of these conversations was how much our community members genuinely care about the work that we do and value the essential services we provide. I look forward to continuing these conversations for many years to come. They will help us improve and expand our offerings to reflect the evolving needs and interests of our community.
Many thanks go out to our board and to our Friends group for getting out the vote and to everyone who wrote their own letters of support for the library in the last few weeks. We’ve got a bunch of events and programs lined up for this summer including a community potluck on Tuesday, June 17. I hope everyone will come out and celebrate with us and continue this ongoing dialogue we’ve started to help the library grow and better serve you.
Thank you again! We look forward to seeing you all soon at the library.
