'Needs Assessment' underway at Lancaster Library
Merdies Hayes Editor In Chief | 5/11/2018, midnight
The city of Lancaster is currently conducting a Needs Assessment of the (Los Angeles County) Lancaster Library, in an effort to better understand service, program, and facility needs.
As part of the city’s new community engagement portal, Lancaster Engage, residents are encouraged to “Think. Dream. Become” at the Lancaster Library as they get involved through surveys and community workshop.
“As a woman and a mother with a true passion for literacy, I feel it is our obligation as a municipality, along with valued input from the community, to create an environment where learning, exploration, and imagination take place,” said Council Member Angela Underwood-Jacobs. “This Needs Assessment will result in a plan for the future of the Lancaster Library to create a more welcoming, creative, interactive, and technologically advanced 21st Century library. I look forward to another partnership with the County of Los Angeles, and being part of the process to improve this precious community resource.”
The Lancaster Library Needs Assessment will ensure the future direction of the library is consistent with the needs of the community being served. The Assessment will also include a dialogue with the community about how the library can evolve into a greater community asset, provide expanded service programming, and become a thriving, community hub for residents. Residents are encouraged to take part in this community effort by providing valuable input via the Lancaster Library Needs Assessment Survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/LancasterLibrary, open through May 20.
To be a part of the conversation regarding the Lancaster Library Needs Assessment as well as other community initiatives, residents are encouraged to visit the city’s engagement portal “Lancaster Engage” at www.cityoflancasterca.org/LancasterEngage.
