Anne Arundel Public Library board to discuss LGBTQ programs

Selene San Felice

If you have feelings about public library programming, now is the time to voice them.

Though the Anne Arundel County Public Library staff has already started planning 16 mostly LGBTQ related programs with board approval last month, the library Board of Trustees will hear more public comment regarding the programs at the next meeting on Thursday.

This is the first time in the library’s known history that the board has paid for advertising for a meeting, spokeswoman Christine Feldmann said. Advertising for the 4 p.m. meeting at the Edgewater Community Library ran in The Capital on Wednesday and Thursday, in addition to posts on social media and the library system’s website.

“The board wanted to make sure a complete cross-section of people were aware of the meeting,” Feldmann said. “ We know this is still a very emotional issue for a lot of people. We want to give people the opportunity to say what’s on their minds and hearts.”

The meeting will also include a closed segment to talk about legal costs regarding a public information request from The Capital.

New board member nominations recommended by County Executive Steuart Pittman will be present as guests.

Pittman nominated William Shorter, Joeseph Sapp, Mary Belcher and Leslie Anderson to serve on the board in a County Council resolution on Monday.
