jan as director 1996
Jan as Director 1996
  • Focus has been on core library business
  • Collection development
    • Books are not an endangered species: there will always be demand for a “book on the beach”
    • Magazines & Reference
  • Professional Staff
  • Adult & Children’s Programming
  • Avoiding getting lost in “trends”
    • Library is neither a bookstore nor a coffee house

ST. TAMMANY PARISH LIBRARY footer

lost opportunities
Lost Opportunities
  • Libraries need space for ART
    • Lack of Museums in St. Tammany
    • Display space has by necessity been given over to book shelves
  • Programs stunted by inadequate meeting space:
    • Romance Writers may have to move offsite
    • Overcrowded summer reading programs
    • No space available for teens to meet & interact

ST. TAMMANY PARISH LIBRARY footer

lost opportunities cont
Lost Opportunities (Cont.)
  • No room for a “Friends of the Library” gift shop and perpetual book sale.
  • Insufficient “relaxation” reading areas
  • Feeling of “airiness” and open sight lines ruined by additional shelves and electronic media.
  • No space available for study carrels
  • Not enough storage areas for staff equipment and supplies (Story kits in attic)

ST. TAMMANY PARISH LIBRARY footer

lost opportunities cont16
Lost Opportunities (Cont.)
  • Full shelves result in buying fewer volumes than we should
  • Full shelves result in “weeding” items we would like to keep

ST. TAMMANY PARISH LIBRARY footer

stpl today
STPL today is a very strong parish library system with a wonderful collection, an excellent staff, and a community hungry for library services.

It is a tremendous community resource that is constrained by its buildings.
