Scranton Library’s new Campus Concept
Scranton Memorial Library
Thursday, May. 1 ,6:30 PM
Scranton Library&rsq
Join us for a public presentation of the Scranton Library’s
new Campus Concept

Five years after the narrow defeat of the previous expansion plan, the Library is still in need of more public gathering space, on-site parking and an interior renovation to
accommodate the needs of 21st century library users.   For the last two years, the Board of Trustees has been working hard to come up with a new concept that honors the character and history of our beloved downtown while still providing the necessary improvements our patrons need.

Now you can be part of the story.  Join us for this public presentation and share your comments, questions, thoughts and ideas.  We are still in the planning stage and we need your input to fully bring this concept to life.  If you are unable to join us on May 1st we will be holding additional presentations over the next few months.
 No registration necessary.
