Notes from the nonprofit

Dear Friends of the Colleyville Public Library,

Did you know:

Our library celebrated thirteen (13) years of service to our community in November.
Use of the Library has continued to grow each year since its opening, and in all of its key performance measurements the Library has experienced double and triple digit increases.
For FY 2016 the Library welcomed 120,202 visitors, presented 589 programs to 19,987 attendees, had 14,618 patrons registered, a collection of 80,452 and total circulation of 222,123.
The Colleyville Public Library Foundation—and you—have donated $567,700 to supplement the funds the city provides to our library.
The Colleyville Public Library Foundation, largely through a very generous donation, supports the Summer Reading Program.
The Foundation has provided funding for the Opening Day Collection, staff work stations, children's computers, some of the library's furnishings, CD maintenance equipment and many other items that are outside the city's budget.
The Foundation has donated a large share of the funds to complete the second floor build-out and reorganization over $200k.
During difficult economic times, our library is especially essential to our community. Library usage actually increases when times are difficult. We congregate there, take our children, and check out books, DVD's and CD's.
Our library cannot function to the degree we would like without private funds. We are once again asking you to donate to the Library Foundation as we join the City of Colleyville in updating our Library to meet the needs of our community Specifically …

• Update and increase the number of reader seats
• Revise public access to technology
• Expand access to popular children's programs
• Engage the aging population
• Transition to a single service point on the first floor
• Improve access to popular materials.

For the price of a few books, you can help support our library. Please join us in continuing to make our dreams for an outstanding public library come true.

Sincerely,

The Colleyville Public Library Foundation Board of Directors

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Engage the Aging Population

As 31.5% of Library card holders are boomers, programs and services specific to their needs will be initiated, therefore allowing the Library to stay relevant with this growing segment of the community.
The Colleyville community has a median age of 45.6, which
is significantly higher than the 33.6 median age of Texas
residents. The median age has increased from 40.0 in 2000 to 45.5 in 2010 and 45.6 in 2013.

Population(s) Served

Expand access to popular children’s programs as a result of the community expressing a need for increased access to these popular children’s programs that quickly reach capacity. In particular, patrons noted in the online survey the spots in the programming for 2 to 4 year old children are sometimes at maximum capacity. Many of the most popular children’s programs require registration and quickly reach capacity.

Population(s) Served

A program designed to combat the ‘summer slide’ -- described according to the research of Reading is Fundamental as what happens when young minds sit idle for the summer months.
According to this research children who do not read over the summer will lose more than two months of reading achievement. Summer reading loss is cumulative. By the end of 6th grade children who lose reading skills over the summer will be 2 years behind their classmates.
The Summer Reading Program ensures children who participate don't do the “summer slide” by continuing to encourage them to read through participation in various activities.

Population(s) Served

Transition the adult public computers to a flexible furniture system that will allow access to power for patrons that bring their own devices.
Currently, the Colleyville Public Library’s adult public computers are underutilized, as the computers are used 20% of all available hours. This can be attributed to the public’s access to personal computers and high speed internet at home or on mobile devices. The Library has seen an increase in patrons utilizing their own devices, which has increased the need for flexible seating.

Population(s) Served

As furniture items meet their lifespan, replace them with tables and seats that allow for mobility and power connectivity.
There is a lack of lounge and task seating throughout the first floor of the Library. The existing four seat tables are large and most often accommodate one person. A variety of table sizes, both two seat and four seat, as well as, lounge furniture with access to power could greatly improve the flexibility for patron use.

Population(s) Served

Evaluate and revise the location and access to popular materials as the amount of collections change. Additionally, implement a marketing plan to keep patrons informed of the services available.
The existing facility is in excellent condition and well- maintained. Overall, the layout is manageable for patrons and staff, however the community expressed easier access to popular materials as the most significant change to improve the facility. Many of the most popular adult materials are located in close proximity to the entry, however, navigation of these items is difficult without a cohesive marketing plan. As the Library begins to balance the collection utilization, a transition of required collection capacity is anticipated. This will require the Library to reallocate shelving and revise the layout to provide easy access to those popular items.

Population(s) Served

Reconfigure the existing service desk configuration to a centrally located single service point, as the current first floor service desk configuration is inefficient and confusing to patrons.
The close proximity of two desks (less than 20 feet apart) requires patrons to navigate between them for services. Additionally, these two desks take up a lot of floor space that could be used for display of high use collection items, or additional seating.
