How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Here at Evans City Public Library we believe our programs have been effective because they have brought many more people into the library and have created extra funds for our us. We have been trying to extend the subjects of our programs to all our age groups where as before we were focused on only one age group. They library is made up of more that just one age group, as we have added more programs for other age groups more patrons have come into the library.

Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    We are aiming to accomplish becoming more of a community centered library instead of being known for just books. The library now has programs organized around various age levels such as coloring club and ballroom dancing for adults, for the teens we have teen art club, and for the children we have various programs our most popular being story time. Technology is a major part of today's society therefore we try to incorporate it into our programs if possible.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    In order to be a community centered library we have been trying to immerse ourselves into the community. The Director is part of an anti-bully coalition at the local school . We have functions that go along with the community events such as a quilt show at Oktoberfest every year. We also have a sign in our courtyard that praises the community for it's part in the famous movie "Night of the Living Dead". Every year for HalloWeekends we have a pumpkin carving event that goes along with the theme mentioned above.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    Our capabilities are limited due to financial restrictions however we have been trying to immerse ourselves and provide more for our community with what limited funds that we have.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Our organization will know we are making progress in the community by keeping reports on patron attendance and circulation. Our community is very small therefore word of mouth is a great way to know how you fair in Evans City.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    We have accomplished getting more people into our doors however we would love to have even more. Our town is a middle/lower class town so finding funds to support the community can be difficult. We would like to transfer the library into a more up-to-date facility with technology and the latest best sellers. Our collection is considerably old and if we were to weed all of the books that are outdated we would delete numerous shelves. Therefore with more funding we would be able to update our collection without putting too much pressure on the community.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
