Alabama Public Library Service Wants to Meet with You
Seven library town meetings will give you and the citizens of your community a chance to tell Alabama Public Library Service (APLS) what you think about public library services in Alabama, what you value in our libraries, and what services you think our libraries should provide. Your voice will be heard by those who will write the next five-year plan for library development in Alabama. So please make plans to attend the town meeting most convenient for you.
The meetings will be facilitated by Dr. Elizabeth Aversa, Director of the University of Alabama School of Library and Information Studies, and by Dr. Jennifer Campbell-Meier, Dr. Aversa’s colleague at the university. The current five-year plan is available on the APLS website at: statelibrary.alabama.gov/Content/LSTAinfo.aspx.
