What do YOU want to see in YOUR library?
Our second community meeting is quickly approaching. The first was a huge success. We heard so many wonderful ideas and suggestions for what the community is looking for in a library and what they hope to see. Here are some of the ideas that came out of our first meeting and subsequent conversations:

  • Libraries are community centers. We connect people to information as well as connecting people to people. We need to have a larger meeting room, and smaller quiet rooms to have the programs that we want to provide.
  • Libraries are places for children – whether it’s for parents to meet when their kids are babies, story hours for toddlers, or for games, toys, learning or programs. Our Children’s Room is a very busy place! We’d like a Children’s Room that offers that ‘wow’ factor and includes the space and facilities that our families deserve.
  • Libraries give teens a place to go, and to gather, with friendly, understanding staff, plus the books and materials that they need and want. Our teens need more than a small corner of the Library. They need a dedicated space.
  • Libraries bridge the ‘digital divide.’ We offer computers and technology to allow our entire community to stay engaged in a digital world.
  • Libraries provide access to every age, income level, and stage of life. Plainedge is a school district, but more than 50% of our district doesn’t have children in school. We need to offer something for everyone.

Please join us for further conversation and refreshments in the Library on May 25th at 7:30 p.m. Our Board and design team of architects will be here, and we would love to hear from you! They will be taking notes, so they can design the library that the Plainedge community wants and needs. We want to hear your ideas on how we can modernize (reimagine) our 1960s building, to be the library you've always wanted!

Please RSVP to Michele Lipson, Director at mlipson@plainedgelibrary.org. We hope to see you there!
