Library Commission to Meet With Public

If you have opinions--good or bad--about the city's public library system, the Board of Library Commissioners will meet Thursday at the Sunland-Tujunga branch to hear them.

Thursday's meeting, one of the regularly scheduled gatherings of the commission, gives people a chance "to interact with the decision-makers of the library," said Peter Persic, a Los Angeles Public Library spokesman.

The commissioners routinely visit the system's 67 branches in hopes of better communicating with library users.

When not on the road, the five-member board meets at the downtown Central Library.

During previous visits to other branches, the board has heard from users on issues ranging from changing library hours to expanding book offerings in different languages, for example.

"The concerns vary from community to community," Persic said.

The 1 p.m. meeting is open to the public. The Sunland-Tujunga branch is at 7771 Foothill Blvd.
