To address future needs and growth of the Wood Place Public Library, California, a meeting was held Thursday, March 29, to discuss setting up a long-range planning committee.

"The Library's previous long-range plan expired in December 2010," Director Connie Walker said. "The library board felt it might better reflect the needs of the county if a committee was comprised of citizens representing a larger area of Moniteau County. A group of individuals were invited to an informational meeting to see if a core group might form to serve on this committee and develop a five-year long-range plan. Those attending were either previously involved with the library, or would have skills that would be helpful with the planning."
