Your mission l.jpg
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 21st 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?


How do we get there l.jpg
How do we get there?

    • Other data sources???

  • Develop alternate service scenarios

    • Simultaneous focus on the Parish at large and its individual communities

    • Number of branches

    • Distribution of resources

  • Estimate space needs based on resource distribution models

  • Recommend the optimum facilities scenario(s) to the Library Board
