The first of three public meetings on the future of the Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County was held Tuesday at the main branch in downtown Youngstown.

New library director Heidi Daniel has been seeking public input on what patrons would like to see over the next six years. She will combine Tuesday’s input with a survey done by patrons earlier this year and small focus groups that were held.

“We are looking closely at the services we offer,” said Daniel. “How people connect with us. Where people connect with us and how we might better serve the entire county and how we might get new ideas that might drag people in that have never been in our buildings before.”

The next meeting will take place Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Austintown Library and Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Newport Library.
