What we aim to solve

The library is the hub of the community of St. Marys. It is one of the few places that is open to everyone. The library strives to offer materials and services pertinent to the needs our residents. The library offers a wide variety of educational and recreational reading and audiovisual materials in a variety of formats. The library also provides internet enabled computers and free wi-fi for public use. The library is used as a meeting space by both individuals and organizations. The library serves as a reference point for individuals finding information in general and about the town and services provided to community members. The library provides informational and recreational programs for people of all ages. While literacy and access to books is the heart and sole of the library, it is one part of a what the library does.

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).
