    Focus Groups

    FOCUS GROUP DESCRIPTIONS, DATES, LOCATIONS, AND SESSION TIMES

     

    1. Focus: CHILDREN. How to expand, improve, and adapt children’s services to meet the needs of today’s families. The single most frequently cited area of interest in the public survey: children’s services. Both community leaders and survey respondents cited the significant physical limitations of the children’s area. Working families expressed interest in adjusting program hours so that parents can participate after work with their children.

                              Thurs, March 5           5:30 – 6:30 pm at the library

     

    1. Focus: ACCESS. Identifying customer service innovations which respond to contemporary lifestyles and make library services more easily accessed by the entire community. Second only to children’s services: a high level of interest in making the library more accessible, whether through technological tools, portable services, high- quality online access to all library resources. Both community leaders and survey respondents suggested greater emphasis on the library’s presence beyond its walls, reaching out to support busy families. One of few KY communities of its size without neighborhood branches, this session will solicit ideas for “branching out” without investing in bricks and mortar.

                              Tues, March 3             7:00 – 8:00 pm at the library

     

    1. Focus: SPACE. Adapting the library’s facility to meet contemporary user needs. Across the country, the most effective libraries are high traffic centers of community learning. As more materials are digitized and collection practices are streamlined, libraries struggle with outdated, inefficient physical spaces. This 1 ½ hour session, including a facility tour, will focus on ideas for better connecting facility design with community need.

                                    Thurs, March 5         7:00 – 8:30 pm at the library

     

    1. Focus: TECHNOLOGY. Employing leading edge technologies over the next five years in order to ensure an efficient, easily accessed service delivery system and programs which respond to the learning styles of younger generations. Another area of high interest, this session especially needs participants from high tech organizations and younger tech-savvy populations (especially students) who have ideas for incorporating new technologies throughout library programs and services, and ensuring that the library is a community model for technological innovation.

                                 Wed, March 4     7:00 – 8:00 pm at the library

     

    1. Focus: RETIREES. The need for services specifically relevant to the needs of retirees and older populations. This session seeks ideas on better serving an aging community with a high percentage of residents over 60. How can the library support lifelong learning goals for our older populations? How might these older populations become more involved in strengthening the library’s community presence?

                           Wed, Mar 4     10:30 – 11:30 am at the library
