As Brookfield residents prepare to go to the polls on Nov. 8 – or during the early voting period that begins on Oct. 24 – officials at Brookfield Public Library, 3609 Grand Blvd., will be hosting three open house forums to make provide information about a new facility they've planned to build and the referendum to fund a $10.3 million bond issue that's on the ballot.

All of the forums will take place at the library, where officials hope to demonstrate the present facility's limitations and provide them with detailed information of the proposed new library.

Library officials and the architects who designed the new library will be on hand to answer questions, explain why the present building can't be expanded, provide information on the benefits of the proposed building and explain the tax impact to Brookfield families.

The forums will be held Wednesday, Oct. 5 from 6 to 9 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 15 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; and Thursday, Nov. 3 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Anyone who has questions about the forums can contact Library Director Kimberly Coughran at 708-485-6917, ext. 121.
