President's Message

President’s Message

I am honored that the Board elected me President beginning January 1. There is a lot going on! 

The library is very fortunate to be in such good condition, the result of a long history of talented Boards, committed volunteers, and a very supportive community. I also see a strong partnership between BPL and the Kitsap Regional Library (KRL) system. While BPL owns the building and grounds and is supported by donations from the community, KRL provides the staff, books and programs. For all of these, I am grateful.  

The role of libraries is changing, and we are involved in some exciting changes right here. Beginning in March, 2017 we are launching construction of our remodel and renovate project. We call it the Refresh Project. More details will be available elsewhere on this site.  

In February, we'll begin our strategic planning process. This is when we look up from our day-to- day work and ask questions like how we can become more involved in and responsive to the needs of the community.  

Big thanks to Bainbridge Island for your support.  

Eric Petersen
BPL President
