The Friends of Salem Panola Library will host a community dialogue session on Saturday, Oct. 5, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The meeting will be held in the community meeting room of the Salem-Panola Library, 5317 Salem Road, Stonecrest.

The meeting will give city of Stonecrest residents an opportunity to discuss several issues including what makes for thriving communities, sustainable employment, economic diversity, continued education, extracurricular activities and library programming. Attendees also will have a chance to speak with community leaders.

“Meeting with people to listen and talk about quality of life issues is so important,” said Joyce Lindsey, president of the Salem-Panola Friends. “The library and the Friends are seeking input from the community to plan and deliver programs that help community members to live healthy and prosperous lives.”

Malaika Geuka-Wells, Friends member, said those running for offices in the city of Stonecrest have been invited, as well as government officials.

“Bringing our community together for meaningful dialogue is valuable and important at any time,” said Geuka-Wells “It’s especially timely as this dialogue will take place during the City’s second election. We are hopeful that incumbents, those running for office, Stonecrest consultants and staff, as well as other government officials will attend to listen as residents explore and discuss their hopes for their community.”

Lunch will be provided. Attendees will be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card, free books, a Friend of the Salem-Panola Library annual membership, and other prizes. Winners must be present to win.

Attendees are asked to register for the meeting by contacting Marilyn Cotten at 267-253-6333 or emailing
