Library’s Service Model Study

Library’s Service Model Study Presented to Hanover Council

As many of our library members are aware, the space of our facility designed in 1995 is struggling to keep up with the demands of our 2016 community. Hanover is one of the few municipalities in the region that is growing; and it serves as the hub for a large area around Hanover proper.  We do a great deal of educational programs and events now, as is expected of modern public libraries. These are vital community services, but they take space, and space is what we don’t have.

Therefore, in 2015 the Library Board chose consultants Allan Avis Architects and Beth Ross and Associates to perform a Service Model and Space Needs Study, which was presented to Hanover Council on Monday, Feb. 1 2016. The study evaluates how well our facility and our services are meeting the needs of the community. The study also includes architectural drawings for some suggestions for expansion.  Paper copies of the report are available in the library, please ask staff for assistance.
