The Dorothy Bramlage Public Library will hold an Open House on Thursday, January 30 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public and will feature several stations where attendees can learn about what the library does today as part of its regular body of service as well as some of the new things that are part of the 2020 plans. This includes the new Kaleidoscope Storytime that is being offered this semester and is designed for young children with autism or sensory processing challenges.
Also featured will be the library’s current plans to add some measure of maker space to the current facility. This is be based on the recommendations from the privately funded study that was conducted in the latter half of 2019 by the KSU Technology Development Institute. It was conducted to explore the possibilities for adding maker space to library’s body of service and the partnerships and collaborations that might help make that happen.
The architects who have been working on the building project will also be present to present the latest drawings as well as to introduce a virtual tour that is based on them. Visitors will be able to ask questions and talk about the project with both the architects and with library staff.
To help prepare for the Open House, the library will close to regular business at 4:00 p.m. and reopen at 5:30 for the event. In addition to it, the preschool story program that is scheduled will also be held at 5:30 in the meeting room.
