    Jefferson County Public Library to Hold Community Meetings

    Jefferson County Public Library (JCPL) has scheduled a number of community meetings throughout its service area to provide an update on library services.

    "JCPL is facing significant short-term challenges," said JCPL Interim Executive Director Pam Nissler. "Over the past few years, we’ve had to absorb significant revenue reductions, and this has required us to cut expenses (and services), with additional reductions anticipated in 2012.

    “We are working very hard to develop sustainable solutions to our budget challenges that will allow us to bring expenses in line with projected revenues and maintain a meaningful level of library services in 2012 and beyond,” Nissler added. “In addition, we need to find innovative ways to meet the growing demand for library services both now and in the future.”

    The purpose of the upcoming community meetings is to provide an update on library services, solicit input from library patrons and other Jefferson County residents and respond to community concerns. Meetings are currently scheduled for the following dates and times.

    • Golden: Tuesday, Oct. 11, 5:30-7:30 p.m., Golden Library meeting room
