Esco Library Planning Session TUESDAY, MARCH 13, 9:30 AM

With only four days notice, they have set a meeting for this Tuesday at 9:30 am.  This is unfortunate since many (most?) users of the library work or are in school at this time.  Please ask them to hold another session, with at least 2 weeks notice so people can arrange their schedules, for a meeting in the evening so that working people and school-age youth can attend and participate.
