On March 2nd, the Library submitted a request to the Chester County Vision Partnership Program to fund a major grant to help our region envision a new facility that will serve the needs of the library and the community for many years into the future. The grant would partially fund Step One of building a new library – engaging the community to get its input and support. The grant request was supported by all 8 municipalities served by the library with Kennett Township taking the lead and providing the municipal financial match.
On Saturday, March 12th, the Board of Trustees attended a board retreat led by Carl Francis of EnvisianStrategic to help the board begin to resolve the controversy over last year’s unsuccessful name change. Carl presented his research and recommendations and listened to trustee input. After much discussion, the trustees agreed to invite community leaders and supporters of the Library to a series of three back to back presentations on April 12th to share the results of the board’s research.
The board welcomed new trustee, Dr. Barry Tomasetti, an at large member from New Garden Township.
