RECAP GRAND OPENING EVENT
Unpleasant situation – discussion veered off topic due to a visitor making disruptive/insensitive comments. This caused general discomfort. It was suggested to make future discussions more structured including posting an agenda at event and in promotional material, having an emcee/moderator, setting up chairs in a formal speaker/audience pattern. Degree of structure depends on type of event.
Good things – great food, 37 people attended, good conversation, people using library, lots of positive feedback.
