Schedule of Meetings

The commission generally meets on the third Monday of each month at alternating locations but please check as to which library it is being held.  I have listed the locations for our in-person meetings.  January and February meetings are on the fourth Monday due to a conflict with holidays on the third Monday.  The December meeting is on the second Monday.
