NOLS library director Margaret Jakubcin will provide an informational presentation about the Sequim Library expansion project and the conceptual planning process underway. The presentation is open to everyone. This presentation will be repeated at 10 a.m. Monday, June 5.

Other ways to get involved

There are many opportunities for community members to get involved in the conversation — and the solution — by getting informed and sharing time, energy and expertise.

• Schedule a presentation. NOLS representatives would love to talk to your group about this project. Email or to schedule an informational presentation for your group.

• Community Taskforce. The Community Taskforce on the Sequim Library expansion is a small, engaged group of community volunteers. The CTSLE will play an essential role in facilitating community input and discussion about the Sequim Library expansion project, and working directly with staff, architects, and advisors to develop conceptual planning, schematic design and a project timeline.
