This project focuses on increasing community engagement with individual public libraries throughout the Uplands region of Indiana.
In the first phase of the project, a listening tour is being conducted with the staff and staff-selected stakeholders of each library to learn about immediate and long-term goals these libraries have in the areas of public access, services provided, collection development, and community engagement. Additionally, a user survey will be distributed throughout the community to gather patron input.
From the gathering of this information, we will be equipped for the second phase of the project: providing individual libraries with 1. Tailored recommendations for user and library discovery of attainable resources and services, 2. Comprehensive research resources and platforms, compiled with sustainably accessible avenues and tailored specifically to the community’s needs and interests, and 3. Sustainable facilitation of community programming.
