ZANESVILLE, Ohio – The Muskingum County Library System works hard to provide the public with a great experience by offering modern information and relevant events. MCLS Executive Director Stacey Russell explained how the library regularly interacts with the public to discuss ways to improve customer service and convenience.

“We are starting a new 3 to 5 year strategic plan and part of that process is we’re seeking community input. We’re doing that in a variety of different ways. The first of which is community meetings. Our first community meeting will be at John McIntire Library this coming Thursday at 5 p.m. in Meeting Room B,” Russell said. 

Community meetings will be held at all locations at different times along with an online survey or a paper survey sheet that can be filled out at any time before the end of June.

“It’s really important as we work on our next strategic plan to get community input. To understand how we are used by our community. To see what the gaps are and how we might fulfill those roles and those gaps in the community. So it’s really important that we’re responsive to the community and the community meetings will have a big role in ensuring that,” Russell said.

The library recently hosted a Family Reading Festival that was attended by more than 3,800 visitors. For more information about the community meetings you can visit the events page on their website.
