Showcase: The Anatomy of Libraries

My Mum lives in Gisborne. She doesn't use the library and won't write a letter to the editor about the library user-charges in Gisborne because she doesn't know what she'd say.

I asked Mum why she doesn't use the library: "I don't need to." I asked Mum what would encourage her to use the library: "If they had events or things that may interest me I might go." Now I know the library has lots of things that may interest Mum, but she doesn't. Or if she does, she's hasn't been persuaded to give it a try.

Recently Carolyn Robertson, Christchurch City Libraries Manager, wrote a brief post on the LIANZA website about her attendance at the LIANZA Waikato/Bay of Plenty Weekend School.

I also attended the weekend school and the stories Carolyn shared about the impact of the February earthquake on Christchurch City Libraries were compelling and heart-wrenching. Carolyn's stories also made me realise that there are some practical questions your library should consider, that may not be covered in a civil emergency plan.

Sally Pewhairangi - Who are your top 10 borrowers?

Growing your library isn’t just a worthy goal; it is a necessity for your survival. But growth requires focus – a focus on your number one market. A business doesn’t grow by treating all customers equally and neither should libraries.
