Beyond Surveys and Purposeful Planning: Ideation Results

Moving beyond surveys and planning purposefully will help you create library programs and services that really meet the needs of your community. But how do we know what they really need and where do we start?


Here you will find ideas generated during the workshops by location. After coming up with ideas of how to get more people into the library by using 6-8-5 we prioritized and organized them into How, Now and Wow ideas. For more information on these activities see our Purposeful Planning page.

Please note you will need to zoom in quite a bit in the pdfs to read the notes.
