Escambia County Seeks Residents To Serve On Library Committee

August 31, 2012

The Escambia County Board of County Commissioners is seeking county residents to serve on a Blue Ribbon Task Force to develop the blueprint for library operations for 2013 until 2018. The plan will include the goals and objectives that will guide library services for the West Florida Library System.

The committee will envision, evaluate and assess community needs with distinctive programs and services for library operations. The committee will have the potential to revamp and streamline the processes that enable libraries to respond quickly to rapidly changing environments of providing library services.

The final document produced as a result of this committee will provide a future plan for the West Florida Library System. The committee is expected to meet for approximately six months in order to complete this task.

The Board of County Commissioners will select five members for the Task Force, one representing each district. If you are interested in serving on the task force, or for more information, contact Marilyn Wesley, Community Affairs Department Director, at (850) 595-3130.

Resumes can be emailed to, or mailed to:

Marilyn Wesley
Department of Community Affairs
221 Palafox Place
Pensacola, FL 32502

Please include contact information and what county district you live in on the resume. The deadline for resumes is Friday, September 7, 2012.
