FORT WAYNE, Indiana (WANE) – With increased use and aging buildings, the Allen County Public Library is exploring options for its next chapter.

The board met in a special session on Wednesday to hear branch-by-branch reviews from Bostwick Design Partnership, a Cleveland-based architectural firm.

The study (download available below) assessed each branch based on size versus usage, building condition and expansion capacity for current conditions and 10-year projections.

For example, the Aboite branch is not of adequate size, the lowest rating for building condition, does not allow for future expansion, and cannot be renovated to meet demand expected in 2032.

The cost of the project is unknown as the board faces so many choices. CAPL’s director of community engagement, Stephanny Smith, hasn’t ruled out asking taxpayers for help.

“In yesterday’s meeting, we shared that this would likely result in a referendum and then a place on the ballot to approve the link,” she emailed WANE 15.

“Because we haven’t determined the final scope of the project, we don’t have a dollar amount for what the taxpayer contribution might be. It was also shared that the library had reserves and would be able to contribute up to $ 21 million to the project. “

The public can speak at a meeting on Monday, January 10 at 7 p.m. Registration for the live session is available on the library website. The library plans to offer a public inquiry, open houses and will launch a new website, www.YourACPL.org, on Monday.

“It took us a year to initiate conversations with our community and our library.
staff to get there. This is where the fun part begins. I am delighted to hear what the
the community reflects on the recommendations. Residents of Allen County feel very
logged into the library, and I hope we get a lot of feedback, ”said Susan
Baier, Director General of ACPL.

The final version of the plan, which will be received by the CPRA Board of Directors in April
2022, will reflect community feedback.

However, all five branches will continue to offer pick-up library reservations through their curbside services, meaning you can still access Chromebooks / Hotspots, Tax Forms and Divorce Records, at the KPL Library of Things, in addition to reading materials. For those who cannot make it to the library to take advantage of curbside service, KPL offers postal service to eligible individuals.

Milwaukee City Librarian Joan Johnson said a program to get Milwaukee teens to use library resources to help them with their studies and careers is developing in early 2022.

the Connected Learning Program for Teens started about five years ago. The Mitchell Street Library has a makerspace and community kitchen for a culinary arts program. Johnson defines a makerspace as a room, “where people can come in and create their own content. For Mitchell Street, we focused on the people who create audio and video content, and the people who create graphic arts.

Johnson said the Mitchell Street Library provided hardware and software.

She said that a new makerspace at the Good Hope Library focuses on industrial design and features a laser cutter and a 3D copying machine.

A soon-to-be-available makerspace room at the Washington Park Library will focus on information technology, including computer coding and robotics.

The town librarian said other libraries have sewing machines to help people create content.

Johnson said planning for a new Martin Luther King library includes hearing from the neighboring community about what they want in a creative space. The new King branch is slated to open in fall 2023.

Johnson said the Milwaukee Public Library’s efforts to involve more teens also included hiring of more than 30 teenage interns. She said workers in paid positions “help us develop programs for their peers.”

Johnson said the current starting salary is $ 15.00 per hour and the incentive salary range for residents of the city of Milwaukee is $ 15.45 per hour. Applications and high school transcripts must be submitted no later than 4:45 p.m. on Monday, January 10, 2022.

For more information: mpl.org/TeenInterns

Left to right: Joan Johnson, City of Milwaukee Librarian, Cavalier Johnson, Acting Mayor of Milwaukee, and Jennifer Webb, Head of Library Services at the Washington Park Library, discuss the Teen Connected Learning program at the Washington Park Library.

Acting Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson joined the City Librarian for a tour of the Washington Park Library on Thursday. He said library programs that engage young people “keep them off the streets. It’s an impact on public safety,” Johnson said. “We’re talking about making investments upstream to stop some of the things that we’re seeing backwards, in terms of public safety and involving people in the justice system.”

Acting Mayor Johnson also spoke of his long personal use of libraries, including a brief period when he was afraid to go to the library.

“I had borrowed a book on Batman and lost it. I thought my fine was going to be astronomical. But luckily they forgave him and I got a new library card years later, ”Johnson said.

SUMAS – Due to flooding in November, the Sumas Public Library is closed. In recent weeks, library staff have been busy safeguarding the collection.

Alexa Andrews, branch manager for the Everson and Sumas branches, said last week that the building was leased to the town of Sumas. Another part of the building, at 461 Second St., is used by local senior services.

“We were able to salvage the majority of the library’s collection and we saved the furniture that could be cleaned,” Andrews told the Lynden Tribune in an email. “There are still significant losses of furniture and equipment.

Andrews explained that it will be “a few months” before the building reopens to the public.

“In the meantime, (Whatcom County Library System) will provide the bookmobile and pickup service to residents of Sumas,” she said. “This plan is being developed by library staff.”

WCLS will contact users of the Sumas Library as soon as more information becomes available. Current staff will work from the bookmobile or other WCLS locations, Andrews said.

“We were very lucky that, although the water came very close, the newly renovated Everson Library came out unscathed,” Andrews said. “There has been no significant damage to libraries other than Sumas. “

In-person holiday events continued to be put on hold across the county due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Our library staff continue to work hard to provide library services and look forward to seeing clients at the library,” said Andrews.

Andrews also encouraged library users to visit the updated community resources page on his WCLS website for resources specifically for flood victims: wcls.org/community-resources.
