The "Community Needs Assessment and Visioning for a 21st Century Public Library" was done for the Takoma Park Maryland Library by Providence Associates in the final months of 2013. It was completed at the end of January 2014, and the final report is now available at the following link:
It contains a summary of survey and focus group responses, 'best practices' of 21st century public libraries and consultant recommendations - followed by an appendix detailing the data that was gathered.
We are excited to share this report with the Takoma Park community. It will be discussed with the City Council on February 27th at a round table discussion on the Library which the public is welcome to attend.
