Equity regarding library improvement projects and library services
In the past few years I've been able to be a patron of different libraries in Austin. There is definitely a significant different between the libraries, depending on what part of town you live in; differences include physical structure of the building as well as the outside (plants, parking lot), size of the library, computers & furniture, types of events hosted in each library, and number of staff. I'm also wondering what services are library visitors most in need of, services most utilized, and other staff that may be needed in certain libraries to better serve that community (ex. hiring a social worker to assist with resource referrals, facilitate groups, or help with deescalation of patrons).
