Coffee with Council debuts at library


Submitted report

McALESTER — The first of four Saturday morning events called “Coffee with the Council” begins at 10 a.m. Saturday at the McAlester Public Library.

McAlester City Council members Buddy Garvin and Travis Read will make themselves available to answer questions from the public during this week’s event.

The series was the brainchild of Head Librarian Christine Sauro, who said the library will provide coffee and donuts for the informal question-and-answer sessions.

The remaining schedule for the series is:

Sept. 14 — Mayor Steve Harrison and Councilman Sam Mason;

Sept. 21 — Councilmen Weldon Smith and Councilman Robert Karr  

Sept. 28 — Mayor Harrison and Councilor John Titsworth.

“Coffee with the Council” sessions will be in the library’s Whiteacre Room. For more information on this or any other library program, call 918-426-0930.
