It was determined that 70 to 80 per cent of users lived in a specific concentrated area around each library. School Librarian: Jody Jones . 2. The Library Services and Construction Act is administered by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, which provides states with annual grants for the extension and improvement of library facilities. Some goals in the Library Program Development Plan should be accomplished each year. This finding illustrates the importance of locating the library within walking distance and led to the recommendation that facilities should be centrally located to the population served and where access by walking is most convenient. Additional financial assistance is available from the Demonstration Cities and Metropolitan Act (Public Law 89-754). Highly Effective School Library Program Action Plan (2011-2012) Date: September 10, 2011 Leo William Butler Elementary School . Since most librarians do not have the necessary experience to deal with the details of library planning, a specialized group of librarians well versed in dealing with library problems should provide consulting services. Library development plan : thirty-year programme for India with draft library bills for the Union and the constituent states. The survey concludes that in order to catch up with stated needs and thus to meet these standards, a total national expenditure of nearly $500 million for books, $38 million for staff, and more than $400 million for operating expenses is needed.2. 8. Space that is needed for auditorium and conference rooms depends on actual library programs. The detailed schedule of timing for major work elements, which was included in the prospectus, is also shown below. This was done through the use of registration data provided by the library and included the total number of people registered and their place of residence. Costs, too, are constantly rising. The Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission "Program Cost Estimates" reproduced below is an example of the complete program budget. This includes the responsibility for organizing the library program and suggesting initial planning proposals to make that program possible. Although the standard usually suggested is one square foot of parking for every square foot of building area, accessibility by walking and car should be taken into consideration. The first step in developing a library budget is to look at what the library hopes to accomplish in the next year. 15. The application for federal grants is made to the appropriate state library agency by the locality undertaking a program for library service improvement. This modifies somewhat the standard shown in Table 2. Consultation among the library staff, a qualified consultant, an architect, and the planning staff is essential to determine how existing facilities meet the demand for services, what developments are necessary to overcome shortcomings, and to plan for future needs. Title II provides supplementary federal grants to both state and local bodies for metropolitan development projects, including libraries, as incentives for comprehensive metropolitan planning. The librarians were asked to give a numerical rating between 1 and 3 for the following situations: (1) lack of table space or sitting space; (2) insufficient browsing space around shelves; (3) congested internal movement; (4) insufficient space around the card catalog; (5) overflow of children into adult areas; (6) high noise level. The Library’s 2004-2007 Three Year Plan process was scheduled to take advantage of the preparation and outcome from the Review which took place in Spring 2004. It can also be a source of constructive activities for both young and old by providing such extra services as story hours for children and record concerts for young adults. ALA Bulletin 61: 968–974 (Sept., 1967). A survey of local behavioral patterns in the use of library facilities should be used in conjunction with the general concept of central location. ft. per registrant. 00–2003 . Main Core Tie. (Where registration was not applicable, the same information was derived from circulation slips.). This is important, because the same number of people may make use of libraries in different degrees of intensity depending on such factors as age, education, and income. The survey concludes that in order to catch up with stated needs and thus t… It is important that the planner develop a personal understanding of specific community objectives.

The Cuyahoga County study bases its recommendations on the results of a local survey, which showed that in most cases library users preferred libraries located close to home. Regional Planning Commission (Cuyahoga County), Changing Patterns: A Branch Library Plan for the Cleveland Metropolitan Area (Cleveland, Ohio: 1966). The major type of land use surrounding the library was one of the bases for the planning recommendations. The appropriate capacity of such units is 3,000 to 4,000 volumes and never less than 2,500 volumes. Branches are called "treasure houses," with decorations, furniture, and materials oriented toward children. As a result, many libraries are not easily accessible and are under-used. An evaluation of building size and condition is necessary to determine whether each structure can provide necessary services. Service areas were identified as those where most of the users lived, as illustrated by the map. As has been said, generally the library should be centrally located in, or very near, a central business district or shopping center, with modifications to suit local patterns of library use. Title III is for the purpose of developing local, regional, statewide or interstate cooperative networks between public, school, academic, and special libraries. ft. per registrant to 2.6 sq. Here the library can use such tools as lectures, discussion groups, and films. Learning how to develop a project plan doesn’t need to be complicated. The availability of a current long-range plan will make this step much easier, because the plan should already document your community’s library service needs and the library activities necessary to meet those needs. Library Development Plan: Thirty-Year Programme for India. To celebrate this history, each month we're presenting a new report from the archives. Intended Learning Outcomes. Although it was recognized that this evaluation was based exclusively on opinions and that crowding, where it existed, could be caused by poor design as well as by size, this measurement was considered more accurate than population figures and square feet per capita. Whether in formal or informal approaches, the ongoing ability to recognize and capture learning is extremely important. 0000000731 00000 n In Washington State, a rural library system serving a very sparsely populated area gave up the bookmobile and experimented with mailing a catalog of books available in a larger and more centrally located branch library. How will we get there? 0000002061 00000 n 10. 9. 2018-2019 Elementary Library Yearly Theme: Ubuntu. In Atlanta, for example, the Williams Branch in the heart of the commercial area has a circulation of some 100,000 books per year; but the Kirkwood Branch, located in a more traditional site opposite a park and away from the center of activity, circulates only 38,000 books per year. The catalog is a simple and inexpensive publication similar in format to the Sunday book supplement of a newspaper. The staff includes librarians with a strong interest in and understanding of childrens' needs. Up to 80 per cent of costs can be federally financed in combination with other federal grants-in-aid programs, such as Title II of the Library Services and Construction Act. Several aspects of this experimental program are worthy of notice. Key Performance Targets for Goal 2. An appropriate beginning for the local survey is an inventory of each existing library in terms of the characteristics of service (service area, circulation, book stock, and hours of operation); exterior physical characteristics (location, surrounding land uses, building condition, size of building, and parking facilities); and interior physical characteristics (total space on the main floor, meeting room space, seats for adults, and seats for children). The major provisions of this 10-part law, which includes grants to aid public library construction, are as follows: Title I provides financial and technical assistance to help cities plan and carry out programs for rebuilding and restoring entire sections or neighborhoods of slum and blight, and to improve the general welfare of the residents. The next step is to determine whether each library, as described by the inventory, meets local objectives for service, which are determined by applying national library standards (modified, where appropriate, to meet special local needs). How to Write a Program Planning Guide | 2 5 /2017 YCPL Programming Policy A. Although the solution to the problem of site selection is not simple, attempts have been made to provide rational guidelines for this decision. 7. When projected use of facilities indicates that 8,000 sq. The actual percentage of the local share is decided on the basis of the state's wealth as determined by the per capita income. Yet, according to a national survey conducted by the American Library Association, many public libraries do not meet the association's minimum standards for total number of volumes, number of professional staff, and allocation of funds for operating expenditures. W. I. Goldman and E. C. Freund (eds.). The experiment is apparently extremely successful. 0000004130 00000 n In the first two weeks of the program some 1,700 requests for books were received by the library. A total of approximately $42.5 million plus $9 million carried over from the previous year was appropriated under this act in 1968. Elementary Library Media, Strand 1- Reading for intellectual, personal, and emotional growth. Another consideration in determining building size for new construction is the minimum area considered necessary to provide adequate services and justify the cost of construction. We hope you enjoy this fascinating snapshot of a planning issue of yesteryear. Title II provides financial help for actual construction of public libraries in areas where facilities are lacking. The purpose of this report is to assist the planner in recognizing the major trends affecting needs for library facilities and to provide guidelines in the preparation of plans and recommendations for public library developments. It will inform our annual operational plan and strategic initiatives which will set our more detailed programmes and projects. Copyright, American Society of Planning Officials, 1968. Planners are not newcomers to this cooperative effort, but their function is too frequently reduced to advising on the selection of sites for new developments. Digital citizenship, copyright and higher education Kim Tairi. By contrast, evenings and weekends are times of peak activity for a library.9, In general, most library authorities agree that libraries should be centrally located in or near commercial areas and shopping centers in order to promote library use. As you consider all the aspects of your role as a library media specialist, always keep in mind the importance of taking a systematic approach to problem solving. Individual states become eligible by submitting a state plan to the United States Commissioner of Education for approval. The vision of the library must be observed in a certain time period that you need to determine so that proper identification of growth can be observed. The method used in the preparation of a branch library plan for the Cleveland metropolitan area,13 will be discussed below. Posters are placed in churches, stores, and social agencies and gathering places to make people aware of available facilities. PUBLIC LIBRARY BUILDING PLANNING RESOURCE MATERIALS Library Facility Planning Workshops Introduction to Library Facility Planning Stanford University – California State Library November, 2000 (Additional Information Inserted December, 2000) Prepared by: David R. Smith Consulting Librarian 130 Holly Road Hopkins, MN 55343 (612) 933-0199 0000002482 00000 n These needs will continue to rise at an accelerated pace. Greater emphasis on services is also a response to a decline of library use in the inner city. The usual approach in determining the service area is to apply American Library Association standards, which suggest that patrons should be able to reach the library in no more than 15 minutes' travel time, for urban areas, or 30 minutes in rural and suburban areas.14 The extent of services needed is then based on the total number of people who can get to the library within the stated times. This was true for both adults and children. 1030 15th St., NW Suite 750 West Principles and Practice of Urban Planning (Washington, D.C.: International City Managers' Association, 1968). Other important factors are the generally higher level of educational achievement and increasing leisure time. The proportion of younger people in the total population is continually increasing, and is also the largest group of library users, taking between 50 and 60 per cent of the books circulated by the average library.3 Similarly, the rising ratio of retired people with both time and inclination to use library facilities will increase demand for services. This lesson will introduce students to the library theme for the 2018-2019 school year. Becoming familiar with the community and the neighborhoods, becoming involved in community affairs, meeting with local groups, members of minority groups, public officials, teachers, newspapermen, and, of course, the librarians, is an essential part of the planning function. 42–44. This approach was refined in the Cuyahoga County report, since use of the travel time criterion does not allow for differences in population characteristics. A review of 33 general plans prepared for major urban centers since 1960 shows that 22 devoted chapters or sections of chapters to libraries. The Library Development Plan 2007-11 . 0000001738 00000 n One of the more obvious ways of bringing service to the public, and to expand library services, is the use of bookmobiles, which are equally useful in high-density areas of the city and in the sparsely populated suburban and rural communities. Evaluation of existing facilities is the first step in determining the need for library improvements. Chicago, IL 60601-5927, Phone: 312-431-9100 No Access Reviews. This proposal, although brief, should contain all the information concerning the scope of the study. 16. Location is one aspect of library planning with which the planning agency is most frequently involved. Similarly, misconceptions of what constitutes a proper library site have caused new buildings to be located in civic centers. 164 0 obj << /Linearized 1 /O 166 /H [ 1062 676 ] /L 203249 /E 58545 /N 35 /T 199850 >> endobj xref 164 19 0000000016 00000 n Background 6 2.1 Topography and administrative divisions of Myanmar 6 2.2 Demographic situation 6 2.3 Socioeconomic development 7 2.4 Health Care System in Myanmar 7 ft. would be too large for actual needs alternative service such as bookmobiles should be considered.15. Time Frame. (Planning for Library Excellence, Revised [Draft]) Building Program After the library has completed its community analysis, defined its long-term goals and objectives, and determined the need for additional space, a library building program is developed. Determine the extent to which the various levels, units, and agencies of government might participate in the conduct of the library facilities and planning program. The local share for library improvements varies from a minimum of 33 per cent to a maximum of 66 per cent of total cost and can be contributed by the state, the locality, or a combination of both. A twenty four month work plan might be too long, because many conditions change during a whole year, and by the end of the year the objectives and priorities may have have all become different. Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission, Comprehensive Library Planning Program Prospectus (Waukesha, Wis.: 1968). New college graduates and career seekers can develop their own plans. Similarly, the Oak Cliff Branch of the Dallas Public Library located in a prominent shopping area, loaned 163,000 books. Each program should be strongly associated with the organization's overall mission. In order to analyze librarians' opinions concerning adequacy of building size, the Cuyahoga County study developed a set of six questions which described adequacy of library space during peak hours. In addition, the branches located in slum areas place strong emphasis on children's programs. The library also may show collections of paintings, photographs, and art objects and can provide auditorium facilities for special programs of entertainment, adult education, and community activities. Standards for bookmobiles are largely determined by local needs and cannot be as comprehensive as those for library buildings. In most cases both adults and children made a special trip to visit the library and did not combine the library visit with other activities. From setting a vision for the library to articulating its mission to establishing a set of goals for achieving that mission, the board can and should be involved. Besides books, libraries are providing music and foreign language recordings, films and microfilm, and technical and special interest publications. Wheeler and Goldhor, op. cit., p. 412. A project plan is mainly used for different purposes. However, the survey showed that those who walked to the library used facilities more frequently than those who drove. The report Library Facilities, prepared by Herkimer and Oneida counties (New York), outlines the operation of the bookmobile service for areas not served by other facilities, The bookmobiles stop every two or four weeks in 46 different locations of this two-county region. The building The reason it takes so much time to develop is because there are a number of routes from your current position to your vision. In general, however, the bookmobile service should be planned and operated to provide equal service to children and adults. To evaluate existing facilities, it is first necessary to determine the actual area served by each library, the number of people who live within this area, and the services they require. Westport CT: Libraries Unlimited, 2005. Various community activities are either sponsored by the library or made possible because the facilities are available. cit., p. 425. 6. The librarian is the pivot of this cooperative effort, and his basic function is to draft proposals based on his evaluation of the community's needs and the capabilities of existing facilities. Agenda 2063 is the blueprint and master plan for transforming Africa into the global powerhouse of the future. Whereas the cost of land is estimated to be approximately one-third of construction cost, the cost of the central site may be as high as half the cost of the building. Recommend a practical time sequence and schedule for comprehensive regional library facilities and services planning program as well as an estimate of the staff requirements necessary to complete the work and schedule within budgetary limitations. Occasional Papers, No. The cost of operating a library serving 100,000 people was estimated to be $3 per capita in 1950, but in 1959 an expenditure of $3.44 per capita was needed to provide the same level of service.12 More recent practices would place the per capita expenditure at $4. ____ Fliers distributed to schools, community groups, homeschoolers, businesses and other libraries Media releases to local newspapers, school papers, radio, TV, Friends of the Library ____ newsletter, etc. In 1968, the Chicago Public Library began experiments with the use of bookmobiles for a summer program. Wheeler and Goldhor, op. Junior School: Held discussions with staff as to possible uses of library for reading development.Library Development Plan 2012-20133 323/01/13 5. With the greater emphasis on interior convenience and comfort, there is also greater emphasis on placing the library areas used by the public for reading and browsing on the first floor at sidewalk level. The maximum and minimum standard for library gross floor area was established in this case at 1.4 sq. In low-density or suburban areas the report suggests locating the library near intercepting arterial highways. Although this was true in most cases (49.8 per cent), the second largest pattern of library use was in conjunction with a school by children (17.4 per cent) and in conjunction with shopping by adults (27.0 per cent). In addition, when combined with a survey of the registrants who live in the "service area," it also allows measurement of the relationship between specific population characteristics and the extent of library use.
