Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh to hold annual public meeting March 26
The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh will hold its annual public meeting at 6:30 p.m. March 26 at the East Liberty Branch on 130 S. Whitfield St.
Topics include a discussion of the role of libraries in the 21st century, a question-and-answer session and the announcement of the system's 2013 Advocate of the Year Award.
Residents interested in providing comments or asking questions are asked to register by 5 p.m. March 25. Speakers should send their name, phone number, mailing and email addresses along with a copy of their question or comment, which should last no more than three minutes, to firstname.lastname@example.org. They may register online at carnegielibrary.org/meeting or call 412-622-7207.
The publicly funded library system in September 2011 announced, in response to criticism about a lack of openness, that it will allow the public into one board meeting a year and will hold regular community forums across the city.
