How do you envision your library? Mesa Public Library is announcing its new mission, vision, values and strategic plan for the coming years and you are invited to hear about it at a New Year's open house Saturday, Jan. 4:
Main Library, 64 E. First St., 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Red Mountain Branch, 635 N. Power Road, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Dobson Ranch Branch, 2425 S. Dobson Road, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Collaborative vision boards will be available at all three locations to let you share ideas for what Mesa Public Library should be offering in the new decade.
"While we will be sharing our new mission and vision, we also welcome residents' ideas for the future of the library," Mesa Public Library Director Heather Wolf said. "The open house offers our residents the opportunity to meet staff, tour the library and hear about a lot of new and exciting offerings they may not know about."
Among those offerings are THINKspot, a makerspace at the Main and Red Mountain libraries with equipment and technology that is free to use. Visitors can also learn about the Stuffbrary, a collection of unusual items like telescopes and cake pans, that are available for checkout. All locations also offer a variety of free events for all ages to inspire lifelong learning.
