Public Input sought for Planning for Tom Green County Library

Public Input is presently being sought in the planning process for the Tom Green County Library. A new central library facility is presently being planned for the Hemphill-Wells Building in downtown San Angelo. The consultants who are developing a long-range plan for library services, Averus Corporation, are seeking public input to make the new central library user-friendly. As a part of the planning process, the consultants will also address branch libraries.
A public meeting will be held at 6:30 PM on Thursday, January 26 at the San Angelo Convention Center – City Council Chambers to receive public comment and input on Tom Green County’s existing and future library services. Persons participating in the public meeting are encouraged to complete a questionnaire about library services and needs. Copies of the questionnaire are available at the central and branch libraries.

Completed questionnaires must be received at one of the libraries no later than noon Friday, January 20. The results will be tabulated and reviewed at the meeting on January 26.
