Libraries are places for every member of the community and should be committed to providing accessible library services.
To succeed today, libraries must master many different roles, some traditionally associated with libraries, some not. The new multi-faceted libraries’ missions must be supported with great design, strong amenities, and popular programs.
The following strategies will be brought in, as a roadmap to the success of our great library:
a great library offers a broad mix of community services;
a great library fosters communication: Translation services, literacy programs, foreign language classes, English as a second language (ESL) tutors, and computer training;
a great library showcases history and information;
a great library builds capacity for local businesses;
a great library becomes a public gathering place;
a great library is designed to support function;
a great library catalyzes community revitalization.
