It is Thursday evening and I am thinking about libraries. I will share why I am thinking about libraries and also a few memories.
This evening I attended a meeting at the City of Tracy Transit Station. The City held a Community Outreach Meeting to discuss ideas for a Multi-Generational Recreation Center that is in the planning stage.
One of the exciting components of the project is the inclusion of a library in the new center.
There was some great discussion and I was able to make some important contacts.
It will be great to have a second library as we are really under-served with just one location in a city with a population of over 90,000. It will be exciting to be involved in this great project as a board member of the Friends of the Library.
Tonight I am also having memories of when I was a Boy Scout. My Eagle project was helping coordinate the move from our old library to a brand new one. It is great to again be involved in a new library project.
This is much like what we are working toward with this project. However, it will be a much bigger project and will complement and not replace the current library.
I am also having memories of the libraries I went to as a kid in Iowa, the college library I worked at while in school and many libraries that I have visited through the years. However, these are topics for other posts.
For now, I am just really excited that this new project is starting.
Now for some reading before bed 🙂
