  2. 2. Key Priorities Priority 1: Engaging the Community • Community members told us that an engaged citizenry is important for collaborative solutions and informed residents. The library wants to play a central role in strengthening the human capital of Kalamazoo by facilitating community dialogues, developing spaces for groups to meet, providing forums on issues that are important to the community, and providing collections that support learning about issues of public concern. Priority 2: Pursuing Equity and Inclusion: Library Services for All in our Diverse Community • Removing barriers for community members to access the library’s services, collections, and programs is essential to providing equal access to all. The library wants to establish a public presence in areas throughout the community where it may be more difficult to come to the library by utilizing technology, mobile services, pop-up programs, delivery, or other tools. The library wants to ensure that the physical library locations are inclusive and accessible for all by reviewing signage and digital wayfinding, by conducting a disability audit, and viewing the layout of service desks through an inclusive lens. The library wants to review other potential barriers to use, such as fines, and use data-driven decisions that lead to the best use of resources and maximize the impact on our community. Priority 3: Inspiring Literacy, Learning, and Experiences • Public libraries provide a lifetime of learning opportunities, offering diverse experiences and filling gaps in other educational programs found in the community. The library wants to offer new opportunities around multiple literacies, including reading, digital literacy, life skills, financial literacy, and cultural programming. New opportunities might include creating curricula and serialized learning through ongoing classes around particular subjects or offering drop- in training in practical skills utilizing on-site experts.

  12. 12. Library Value to the Community • It is clear from all the activities, programs, and events that the Kalamazoo Public Library has deep roots with members of its community. • They continue to foster growth, innovation, and support for members of its community and this adds value to the library. • As the community continues to respond positively to the programs and events that KPL hosts, KPL will continue to fund and support these types of programs and events for the community.
  13. 13. Plans for Library Improvement • Evaluate the reasons why we had significant decreases in the total amount of circulation, PC & Wifi, and Database usage. • Attempt to remedy issues to ensure proper library usage and growth. • Continue to maintain growth in the positively affected areas. • Continue to host popular programs and events for the public and consider hosting new events. • Maintain positive budget balance.
  14. 14. Value Calculator • The Value Calculator values the Kalamazoo Public Library at 30,932,269.00 when calculated using the yearly statistics. • This value reflects the total number of library services that KPL has to offer. Given the previous slides, it is clear why the value is so high. • Therefore, while some of the value of the library has gone down, the Kalamazoo Public Library is still a very valuable component to the community, and its budget is still showing overall profit.
