Library Planning Meeting Set For Today
The committee of City of Casper and Natrona County leaders to discuss possibilities for the Natrona County Public Library will meet in the library's Crawford Room at 7 p.m. today.
The meeting follows the city's and the county's joint resolution in April to look at what to do with the landlocked, well-used albeit crowded, and potentially unsafe public library at 307 E. Second St.,
The committee is composed of four city council members and two county commissioners.
“The library is now a very well-functioning as far as providing services, but it doesn’t have the space to meet the kinds of demands that a community this size has and will be having as the community grows,” commissioner and committee member John Lawson said in April.
The resolution starts a process to get out accurate information to the public about the value of the library, what it provides and what it needs, and gather public support, Lawson said.
The Natrona County School District board of trustees is scheduled to approve the same resolution at its meeting tonight.
