Library needs your help with survey

Today, Aug. 4, the Jamestown library is sending out a communi-ty survey in preparation for writ-ing a new long-range plan.

A long-range plan is a require-ment of the Office of Library and Information Service. Each library in the state receiving state funds is required to provide the OLIS with an updated plan. The Jamestown library is operating under a plan written in 2000 that expires in December 2005. The next plan will be a three-year plan.

The four-page survey includes information about the library, a survey about services provided by the library and survey of the library user. The survey is includ-ed in this issue of the Jamestown Press, mailed to each household on the island.

The survey can also be down-loaded by going to the Jamestown library home page at www.jamestownri.com/library and clicking on “Survey and Long Range Plan.”

Completed surveys can be returned to the Jamestown library, the Jamestown Town Hall, or the Jamestown Town Offices by Aug 31.For more information, call the library at 423-7280.

Coastline Show Chorus concert

Summer Music in Jamestown continues this Sunday evening, Aug. 7, at East Ferry’s Veterans Memorial Square, with a perform-ance by the Coastline Show Chorus. This award-winning, all-female chorus, which delighted a Jamestown audience three sum-mers ago, is as fresh as ever and back for another visit.

The group performs a cappella, specializing in barbershop-style harmony, but not limiting them-selves to songs in that musical genre. The repertoire is quite varied as the chorus moves easily from old favorites to newer pop songs and show tunes, sometimes featur-ing smaller groups and soloists, always engaging the crowd with good humor and even some fancy choreography.

The show begins at 6:30 p.m. and is free to the public. Attendees should bring blankets or chairs.

The event is sponsored by The Jamestown Press and East Ferry Market and Deli. In case of rain, the show will go on in the Community Center.
