your mission
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?

  • Nonassignable space
      • Add the allocations for the first five types of space
      • Divide that total by a factor ranging from 3 (for a generous allocation) to 4 (four a minimum allocation)
