Library Board to Conduct Public and Staff Engagement


At its Sept. 11 meeting the Fairfax County Public Library Board of Trustees approved a motion to suspend the library’s current redirection plan and seek more public and staff engagement about future directions for the library. The library board’s motion followed a similar motion passed by the Board of Supervisors at its Sept. 10 meeting seeking delay of the current plan, also to get additional public and employee input.

Library Board Chairman Willard O. Jasper appointed two board subcommittees during the meeting. The Evaluation and Communication committee will assess the current state of the library and make recommendations on the future direction of the library based on input from stakeholders. The Floating and Weeding committee is tasked with reviewing the current discard policy.

More details will be available once a plan for public engagement is finalized.
