The next meeting of the Library Facilities Study Committee will be on Thursday, November 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the Sullivan Room in the Seekonk Public Library.

Share Your Ideas

The Committee wants to hear from the citizens of Seekonk. Please send us your thoughts on what your library service needs will be in the next twenty years. We are also eager to hear your suggestions on how the library building should change to meet those needs. You can share your ideas with us by using the library’s feedback form, or you can email us directly at BuildingStudy@seekonkpl.org.  

 Currently Under Discussion  

The Library is located at 410 Newman Avenue. Can you get to this location easily?  Is it easy to get in and out of the library?  Can you suggest a better location for the library? Please send us an email and let the committee know what you like and dislike about the current site. 

The library staff is preparing a document called a library building program. This document analyzes the library’s space needs in terms of the programs and services it offers and expects to offer over the next twenty years. Please send us an email and let the committee know what  services are important to you. Are there services that you would would like the library to expand or add? Are there services that you think should be reduced?
