Schedule of Meetings through 2022

The commission generally meets on the third Monday of each month at alternating Libraries.  I have listed the libraries for in person meetings but due to the pandemic meetings have been virtual on Zoom.  We tried meeting as a hybrid both in person and through Zoom with limited success.  We will continue to meet on Zoom until it is safe to all meet in person.  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.
