The meetings are part of community engagement and design research efforts sponsored by Hennepin County Library in collaboration with University of Minnesota consultants to inform future library services to the Southeast community.

Southeast Library sits on the east bank of the University of Minnesota at 1222 4th St. S.E., Minneapolis. The building was designed by local architect Ralph Rapson and originally functioned as a credit union for university and state employees. It opened as a library in 1967.
