28 28 Your mission We think St. Tammany deserves better. The library board needs your help to articulate a vision of library service for St. Tammany Parish in the 21 st Century: –How should St. Tammany’s library system grow? Are there “peer” libraries for the library to emulate? How does future growth support current long-range plans? –How should the library system be configured in the Parish? Main or “co-main”? Regional or community libraries? What is the appropriate mix? –What defines a “main” or a “co-main” or a “regional” or a “community” library? –How large should the branches be? –Where should branches be located?

29 29 How do we get there? Review existing resources and information –Demographic, political, economic conditions in the Parish today and in the year 2015 (New Directions 2025) –Local library use trends –Peer library comparative benchmark analyses –Other data sources??? Develop alternate service scenarios –Simultaneous focus on the Parish at large and its individual communities –Type of branches –Number of branches –Distribution of resources Estimate space needs based on resource distribution models Recommend the optimum facilities scenario(s) to the Library Board
