Charting impact

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

Our goal is to provide early literacy, digital literacy and lifelong learning opportunities for the residents of Beekman. We have a good foundation to build upon. We need to expand our building in order to provide all of the programs and services that are necessary to reach our goal.

We continue to expand our outreach to the community. We continually look for opportunities to reach non-users in addition to our promotional activities such as our print newsletters, e-newsletters, and social media. We have established a Capital Fund that is earmarked for building expansion. We will continue to look for grant opportunities that match our goals and will continue our fund raising efforts.

We have two professionals and eight paraprofessionals on staff. These staff members are qualified and motivated to provide service to the public and three members of the staff work regularly to reach non-users. We are funded by the taxpayers in the town and have a Friends of the Library group who fund raise on behalf of the library. We are limited by the size of our building as it is 5200 square feet and serves a community of 14,600. Most communities of this size have buildings that are twice the size. We have an unfinished basement that when finished will double the size of the building. With an expanded building we will be able
to reach more residents and provide more services to them.

We have a regular following for our children's and teen programs. We are working to provide programs that meet the needs of the adults in the community. We have made some improvements in the building to provide more work areas in the library for residents. We will not be able to meet this need fully until we are able to expand into the basement. This expansion will allow us to provide residents with quiet study areas, a more user friendly local history collection and a second large meeting room.
