Lunch and Learn Tour

The Cossitt Library team will be offering an engaging tour and discussion inside the current Cossitt Library building before it becomes inaccessible to the public due to construction. The Lunch and Learn tour will show visitors what the blueprint plans of the new Cossitt Library will be, what new programs and partnerships will be set in place, and how you can become involved as a volunteer with the Cossitt Friends of the Library team. Near the end of the tour, a panel of special guests who are dedicated to the Cossitt Library in some way will present their planned involvement with the newly renovated Cossitt Library in a discussion style presentation. Guests are encourage to bring their own lunch for the discussion, but light refreshments will be provided.
