You're not alone! We'll make it easy for you -- Here's your cookbook!

  • PREPWORK - What's in your pantry?
    Planning new programs or services? Review your community demographics and conduct surveys and focus groups to obtain feedback from residents.
  • INPUTS/OUTPUTS - Mix and bake!
    Your library data supports the decisions you make about resource allocation, efficiency and budgets.
  • OUTCOMES - Don't forget the icing!
    Showing how your efforts changed lives in your community is the icing on the cake.
  • IMPACT - "Best Party EVER!"
    Reflect on the goals of your programs and services - and showcase the collective and long-term effects you have provided for your community.
