What Will the Library of the Future Look Like? You Decide.

This will be a rare instance of librarians encouraging people to speak up.

On June 5, Arlington County will hold a focus group to hear the citizen ideas for the future of the library system. And they’re giving away an iPod to boot.

The county is specifically seeking ideas for ways to improve its libraries. Officials will be asking questions like “why do you use the Library?” and “what should the ‘library of the future’ look like?”

The focus group will take place at the Fairlington Community Center (3308 South Stafford Street) at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 5. Refreshments will be served and an iPod will be raffled off.
