This is an open invitation to join a wide ranging discussion of the future of Ricker Library. The Let’s Talk book group will be reading “EXPECT MORE” by R. David Lankes, a short, quick read which is full of ideas (some very radical, many which we already do) for 21st century libraries. WE WOULD LIKE AS MANY LIBRARY SUPPORTERS AND PATRONS AS POSSIBLE TO JOIN IN THIS DISCUSSION. Copies of the book can be obtained at the library or from Don Stover ( 998-4194). The discussion will be on OCTOBER 21st from 7pm to 8m at Ricker Library. All opinions are welcome. This promises to be a lively and interesting hour.
