Board response to program

Due to the overwhelming public response to the children’s program “P is for Palestine”, the Library Board’s  May 20 meeting is being rescheduled for June 5 at 7:30 pm.  The Library is actively seeking a venue that can accommodate the expected turnout of the public.  When the Library secures a venue, proper notice will be provided including updating our website.

At that time, the Board will reconsider the program for the author of the alphabet book “P is for Palestine”.  At present, the meeting agenda will be restricted to this issue.  There will be a public comment portion of the meeting.
