The City has embarked on the process of developing a new library facility, including exploring space needs, services, and funding options. As a parent/guardian and leader in our schools and in the City, your input is valuable and critical. In our research so far, many community members have expressed their desires for improved facilities and programs for children, students, and families. I would like to especially hear from you how a new City library can be useful to all of you and your families, and what the City could provide that would enhance our ability to serve our students in El Cerrito and the surrounding area.
To that end, I’d like to invite you, other members of the PTA/PTSA, and any parents/guardians of students that are interested to a community meeting to discuss planning a new library facility. We will be holding this meeting on October 24, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. at City Hall, 10890 San Pablo Avenue, El Cerrito. Please forward this message to your group, to other parents/guardians, and anyone else you think would like to participate.
If you cannot attend the meeting, you may forward your thoughts directly to me via email at email@example.com or by phone at (510) 215-4302. Additionally, the City is conducting a brief survey online at www.el-cerrito.org/librarysurvey. Please give us your feedback via the survey and also feel free to forward the survey link as well.
The City truly values your participation and your input! I look forward to seeing you, your representatives, and other parents/guardians at the meeting. Should you have any questions, please feel free to reply or contact me at the number below.
Very truly yours,
Karen Pinkos, ICMA-CM
