Facilities Master Plan

The master plan process built on the vision established by the strategic plan. Current library facilities were assessed from a variety of perspectives, including: the physical condition of library buildings and sites; the capacity of library facilities to support 21st century service; and the amount and geographic distribution of library space throughout the city.
