Report of the Citizens Task Force for the Library to the Mayor and the City Council of the City of Saint Paul.
Saint Paul Citizens Task Force for the Library, Minn.
This report by the City of Saint Paul's Citizens Task Force for the Library presents a documented written program of recommendations for growth and change for the next five years based on the results of three sub-studies: (1) a 'Community Analysis,' an in-depth study of the library-related needs of the Saint Paul community; (2) a self-study of the library by its own staff and administration; and (3) a thorough analysis of the Saint Paul Public Library by an external team of consultants (HBW Associates) chosen after a national search. Recommendations are concerned with the role of the library, actions to be taken by the central library, technological changes to promote greater efficiency, restructuring of library extension services, and reorganization of library administration. Attached to this final report as annexes are 'No Growth' budget projections for the Saint Paul Library 1982-86, task force and consultant recommendations with costs projected on the 'No Growth' costs, and the final report of HBW Associates.
