No PT today, special Library board meeting

The Plainfield Public Library has served residents since 1892;
after WWII (as shown above) it was key in helping returning vets re-enter the workforce.

No Plainfield Today post this morning, owing to a special meeting of the Plainfield Public Library board of trustees.

The trustees are meeting with City Administrator Rick Smiley and Director of Administration & Finance Ron West to discuss a crisis in library funding.

Changes in the way the City funds the library have already led to reduced hours and the endangerment of state aid. Now the Library may have to consider a layoff plan.

The special meeting is set for 11:00 AM at Plainfield City Hall Library. Library board meetings are open to the public. Parking available in the City Hall lot and on the street.

Note: I sit on the Library Board as the Mayor's designee.
