Pierce County Library System Announcement.
PIERCE COUNTY, Washington – The Pierce County Library System Board of Directors will discuss the 2022 Library System work plan and conduct other business at its board meeting on Wednesday January 12, 3:30 p.m.
Join the meeting by phone or online:
The Library’s 2022 strategic work plan highlights work in the Library’s three focus areas: learning, fun and community. As the world continues to live and work during the COVID-19 pandemic and external circumstances, the library system intends to focus its work on its fundamental goal of providing reasonable and equitable access to information. Public libraries are essential in a democracy by supporting an individual’s access to the information they seek and the confidentiality to explore that information, form opinions and reach conclusions or decisions.
Ongoing projects for 2022 include exploring innovative ways to deliver library services such as lockers and mini-libraries at retail outlets; the launch of a new reading program called Enjoy BOOKS !, with Try 10 to read, which encourages people to read new genres, authors and broaden their reading interests; improving the availability of books and library materials in a variety of languages; and complete its expansion of Wi-Fi to nearly all of its libraries, which will expand Wi-Fi in its parking lots and improve Internet connectivity for the public.
