Presentation to Women’s Civic League

The Women’s Civic League of North East was foundational in funding the first North East Branch Library in 1950.  The passionate group continues their work to this day, with their primary goal being “to support the North East Branch of the Cecil County Public Library.”

At their most recent meeting, CCPL’s Director, Morgan Miller, was delighted to announce to the group that BCWH Tappe Architects had been selected to lead the design of the much-anticipated North East Branch Library.  BCWH Tappe Architects is a library design firm with extensive experience in designing vibrant public libraries that support a spectrum of programs and spaces for community learning and personal advancement, goals that the Women’s Civic League of North East is eager to see fulfilled.  Miller highlighted the critical work the Women’s Civic League of North East had done over the years to support and promote the library, sharing with them the special “North East Branch Library History” page, which features the group’s contributions.

President Sharon Rosenberg said that “the Women’s Civic  League of  North East is excited that an architect has been chosen! The membership, having seen examples of BCWH Tappe’s previous library designs, is eager to participate in community discussions about the new library’s design for our much-needed facility. The League was started solely to encourage local officials to open a branch in North East. Our job now is to continue our fundraising in support of the library for all the citizens of North East. I cannot express how pleased and excited we are.”

Miller also shared that the next step in the process will be to conduct several rounds of community engagement sessions to gain vital community input from all kinds of users.  This will ensure that the new library is reflective of the people it serves.  These sessions will start in January 2018.
