Ms. Valerie, the Children’s Librarian at the Bernal Branch Library, invites one and all to attend an important meeting tomorrow evening to discuss the library’s operating hours:
We Need Your Input on our Public Service Hours!
SFPL Bernal Branch Public Hearing
Tuesday, October 2nd from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
Refreshments will be served
Bernal Heights Library Meeting Room
500 Cortland Avenue
Please join us for a public hearing and give us your input about our library operating hours.* We need to hear your ideas on library services and priorities. City Librarian, Luis Herrera will give an overview of the Library’s Five Strategic Priorities and Deputy City Librarian Jill Bourne will provide the overview of the Open Hours Project. Also attending the hearing will be a SF Supervisor; Neighborhood Council Members; Friends of the SFPL Board Members, Staff, Donors and Members, and other Community Partners.
*The Library Preservation Fund, renewed by Proposition D in November 2007, requires that the Library Commission assess and modify as appropriate the hours of operation of the Main and branch libraries at least once every five years. As part of that process, San Francisco Public Library is conducting public hearings in each of the City’s 11 supervisorial district this September and October to obtain community input about library hours and services. These public hearings will also allow residents to give us their ideas about library services and priorities and allow the Library to present ideas about its future goals and initiatives.
