The Board of Library Trustees for the Santa Barbara Public Library has scheduled a Special Meeting to hear about what library services are most valued in the community. The public is encouraged to attend and learn about recent and proposed changes in library services due to budget constraints. The Board is particularly interested in gathering feedback about the services residents would most like to see preserved during difficult economic times.

Linda Demmers, a library consultant who is working with staff to plan a reorganization of the Central Library services, will present results of a recent library user survey. A presentation by Irene Macias, Library Director, will describe recent trends in the usage of the two City libraries—the Central Library on Anapamu St. and the Eastside branch on Montecito St. She will also discuss recent changes in service levels, the impacts of increased demands for services and materials, and some possible strategies for coping with anticipated budget reductions.
