1/14 Speaker: Pat Leach – Executive Director of the Lincoln City Libraries

Pat provided a nice Power Point presentation on the need for a new downtown city library.  She went through the changing demands and uses of an effective library, which aren’t feasible at their current location.  Pat talked about her communication with the Mayor’s office, as well as with other potential partners for the relocation at the current site of Pershing Auditorium.  She talked about the benefits to and vision for the new library, but admitted that it is still just a vision.  She and her board are working diligently to ensure they are considered when the decision is made this spring.
