Library Task Force Meeting Monday 10/8

On Monday, October 8 at 6:00 pm there will be a meeting of the Save the Pomona Library Task Force in the Special Collections room of the library at the city plaza. The task force was formed in the face of the proposed closure of the library last June. Since then they've spreadheaded a proposed $38 parcel tax and worked to get it approved by the city council for the November ballot. They've also had fundraising events and rallys in support of the library.

In addition, the task force recommended the reformation of the defunct Pomona Public Library Foundation to work toward future fundraising for the library, and that organization is now meeting and settings goals, along with raising funds. From the task force, an Advocacy committee has been created to work on the voter approval of Measure X, the parcel tax for the library and has created and distributed those green lawn signs you see all over town and are conducting phone banks and precinct walking campaigns for the measure.

Unfortunately, most of the work of the task force has taken place during the day when many people couldn't attend meetings. This week's meeting will be held at a more "worker friendly" hour to try and bring those of you who are interested up to date with what's happening.

The Agenda for Monday's meeting is:
