‘Tell Me Tour’ seeks ideas for Ilsley
MIDDLEBURY — Have some thoughts you’d like to share about the present and future of Middlebury’s Ilsley Public Library? Library staff and trustees want to hear from you.
Library Director Dana Hart has announced a “Tell Me Tour,” during which she and Ilsley trustees will conduct feedback sessions with small focus groups to get a sense of residents’ priorities for the Ilsley and Sarah Partridge libraries.
As frequently reported in the Independent during the past few years, the Ilsley Library is being sized up for major repairs and an addition at its 75 Main St. location in Middlebury.
Hart is prepared to hold weekly feedback sessions through November, if demand is strong. She’d like to keep participation at each meeting to eight people or fewer to allow for a comprehensive exchange of ideas. Any Middlebury-area residents interested in participating in the Tell Me Tour should email Hart at [email protected]. She’ll respond with some potential meeting dates and times.
The focus groups will be facilitated by Barbara Doyle-Wilch, a library consultant who is working with Hart and the trustees.
At the end of the Tell Me Tour, library officials will review the findings and hold a large public meeting to share how that feedback will inform library resources, services and the renovation.
