    27. 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?

    28. 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

    29. Space needs assessment calculations • Establish the design population • Projection of population (20 yrs preferred) • Accommodate extended service population • Collection space • Bookstock @ 10 volumes per square foot • Periodical display @ 1.0 titles per square foot • Periodical backfiles @ 0.5 square feet per title per year retained • Nonprint holdings @ 10 items per square foot • Patron computer network stations @ 50 square feet per station • Reader seating space • Allow 30 square feet per reader seat

    30. Space needs assessment calculations • Staff work space • Allow 125-150 square feet per work station • Meeting room space • General meeting space @ 10 square feet per seat (plus 100 square feet for a presenter) • Conference space @ 25 square feet per seat (plus 10 square feet per seat in gallery) • Children’s programming space @ 10-15 square feet per seat (plus 80 sq.ft. for a presenter) • Computer training space @ 50 square feet per seat (plus 80 square feet for a presenter)

    31. Space needs assessment calculations • Special use space • Add the allocations for collection space, reader seating space, staff work space, and meeting room space • Divide that total by a factor ranging from 4 (which produces a generous allocation) to 6 (for a minimum allocation) • 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) • Add all six allocations for a space needs estimate tailored for your library
