Decision Time for the Baldwin Library Building Program. Public Input Sought. Community Forum Tonight at 7:30 PM..

The Baldwin Public Library Board will hold a community forum on Monday, October 21, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. in conjunction with its regularly scheduled Library Board meeting. At the meeting, Quinn Evans Architects, the firm hired to complete phase-one architectural plans for the Library building project, will give a presentation on their work. After the presentation and Board discussion, the Library Board will open the floor to public comment. Members of the public are encouraged to attend the meeting and provide the Board with input on the building project.

“The Joint Library Building Committee has worked hard to create a plan for the building that fits both the needs of the Library and those of the community,” said Doug Koschik, Library Director. “The Library Board, the Joint Library Building Committee, and the architects are all interested in hearing feedback from the community about the project as it continues to develop.”

Information on the project is available online at
