The Seattle Public Library says
Join us at KEXP to tell City Librarian Marcellus Turner how the Library can better engage and serve the creative community! Live music and theater, networking opportunities, happy hour refreshments and more.

The Seattle Public Library works to support Seattle’s artists, writers and the organizations that support them by showcasing community voices, building relationships with partners and making equity central to its mission – these are all goals of the Library’s commitment to meaningful community engagement.

City Librarian Marcellus Turner invites you to join him at KEXP’s studio gathering space to mix and mingle with other creative professionals and share how you think the Library is doing and how we can engage Seattle’s creative workers more effectively!

Program and entertainment

A panel of artists and writers will join Turner to discuss the Library’s role in the creative community and how the Library supported them in achieving their successes. Hip-hop artist Gabriel Teodros will perform live music prior to the community discussion. Actors from the Young Shakespeare Workshop will present a short theatrical performance. Light snacks and beverages will be available.

Panelists include:
• Pulitzer Prize winning author Eli Sanders
• Hip-hop artist and writer Gabriel Teodros
• Young Shakespeare Workshop artistic director Darren Lay

Community Engagement service priority

Community engagement is one of five key Library service priorities and helps the Library shape its collections, programs, services, delivery methods and more. This event is one in a series of five Community Conversations Turner is hosting to discuss these service priorities. Join us and help the Library provide the best support it can to Seattle’s creative community.

The Community Engagement Happy Hour is part of a series of community discussions Turner is having in 2016-2017 on five service priorities that guide the future of the Library. The series has included conversations about youth and early learning, Seattle culture and history, and re-imagined library spaces. The final Community Conversation will be devoted to technology and access in early 2017.


This event is co-sponsored by KEXP, The Seattle Public Library The Seattle Public Library Foundation, Office of Arts & Culture Seattle, Seattle Office of Film + Music, Seattle Center and media sponsor City Arts Magazine
