A little bit of another break from the questionnaires, more tomorrow.

Yesterday kicked off Banned Books week which essentially is a celebration and recognition of books that have been frequently challenged, by whatever reason.   The Alameda Free Library is hosting a reading marathon of these books, so you can check that out at the Main Library, where the readings will happen whenever the Main Library is open.  The West End Branch will have limited readings on Monday, October 1 from 3-5 pm and at Bay Farm Island Branch on Thursday, October 4 from 11am-2pm.

Community Meeting Rock!

Lots of good meetings coming up this week, so now is as good time as any to highlight their happenings.  

Elbow Room

First, tonight is the first of two meetings to discuss branch library improvements.   This one will be at the West End Neighborhood Library located on Santa Clara and 8th from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.   The second one will be held at the Bay Farm Neighborhood Library located at 3221 Mecartney Road from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. on Thursday.   

If you are at all interested in the physical improvements of our branch libraries head out to one of those meetings.   The purpose of these meetings are to address floor plans and improvements such as HVAC systems, ADA improvements, technology enhancements, and historic elements.   The historic elements are probably just for the West End branch since I believe the Bay Farm one is on the newish side.
