Public Library Ecosystem Report

The Massachusetts Public Library Ecosystem Study was conducted from March 2017 through June 2018 by Sasaki in collaboration with the MBLC.

The resulting report and website offer graphic visualizations of cooperative library use throughout the Commonwealth. A series of community meetings to gather feedback on the report from library stakeholders were held in late summer and early fall of 2018.

The impetus of the project originated in the Construction program, but as the data analysis progressed, it became apparent that the impact reaches far beyond facility design. Discussions and consideration of the report are ongoing.
