The Park Ridge Library will host a six-person panel discussion about serving on a city commission on Thursday, September 29, at 7 p.m. in the first floor meeting room. Attendees can hear from current Commission members about their work, the time commitment involved in serving, and how one can apply for appointment. Registration is available via the library website.

“This is a great opportunity for anyone who has an interest in getting more involved in the community to learn about what is required of anyone serving on a city commission,” said Library Director Joanna Bertucci.
