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.
TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
