Speed Repping: Time to talk to your representives

Speed Repping imageIn honor of National Library Week, the Berkshire Athenaeum, Pittsfield’s Public Library, invites you to our inaugural “Speed Repping” event on Friday, April 13th, from 2PM-4PM.

What is Speed Repping? Much like speed dating, Speed Repping provides community members three minutes to sit down with their representatives in a one-on-one setting and ask them questions about who they are, what they do, voice concerns, or offer suggestions.

Who will be here? Mayor Linda Tyer, State Senator Adam Hinds, State Representative Tricia Farley-Bouvier, Director of Administrative Services Roberta McCulloch-Dews, City Council President Peter Marchetti, and School Committee Member Dennis Powell will be at the Library to engage thoughtfully with the people they serve.

How can you participate? Arrive at the Berkshire Athenaeum auditorium starting at 1 pm and sign up to speak with the representative of your choice. Appointments will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis. You are welcome and encouraged to schedule appointments with more than one representative. The event is free and open to the public and co-sponsored by the Berkshire Athenaeum and Junior League of Berkshire County.

Questions? Contact Alex Geller, Outreach Librarian, at 413-499-9480, ext. 202
