SEMCOG Library Benchmarks
Some communities have their own libraries and some use regional libraries. The strategy depends largely on size and historical practices. Regardless, it behooves municipal officials to make sure the library services being provided to their citizens meet or exceed their expectations. With new technologies dramatically changing library services, it’s also important that the municipal IT budget be at an appropriate level.
The above benchmarks help guide and assure that proper methodologies are being applied to assure effective library operation. The highlighted utilization and cost metrics are especially pertinent.
SEMCOG can help sort through your library issues and develop an optimum strategy, at no cost to member communities. Contact Dave Boerger.
