The Library is working with community leaders to form Community Leaders Advisory Groups to give a more in-depth look to review and shape current and future library services and buildings. The groups’ work will parallel public involvement opportunities with residents.
With the Community Leaders Advisory Groups, Library managers will discuss and review an assessment of current and projected library services and buildings. They will also work with the committees to identify and discuss potential partnership opportunities for sites, facilities, joint programming and services.
The groups will examine countywide trends and demographic information. The groups will discuss current needs at local library branches, and discuss potential opportunities for expansions or new sites for proposed new, expanded or relocated facilities where needed.
As the planning process develops, the groups will discuss draft recommendations for library services and spaces. They will review the types of facilities used to deliver library services. These may include full service libraries, branches in shopping malls, kiosks for library services in high traffic or remote areas, self-service libraries with after-hours access, bookmobile delivery and technology offerings.
The groups are focused in five geographic regions:
Northeast Pierce County: Includes the communities of Sumner, Bonney Lake, Browns Point/Dash Point, Buckley, Fife, Milton, Edgewood, Cascadia, Wilkeson and South Prairie.
Gig Harbor Peninsula: Includes the communities of Peninsula, Key Center and Gig Harbor.
