The
Facilities Master Plan will ensure that the Library has the space, tools, and technology necessary to create a world-class customer service experience for its users, and will support its strategies to:

  • Continually evaluate and improve infrastructure and use of space, 
  • Explore, develop, and implement innovative technological solutions, and
  • Explore, design, and develop Library facilities that are flexible and responsive to changing needs.

It will serve as a guide to the Library as it seeks to provide high quality 21st Century library services that meet the growing and evolving needs of Gwinnett County. 

In constructing the plan, we are taking a new approach that considers community conditions and aspirations, and impacts. Impacts like job creation and fostering entrepreneurship, improving educational outcomes, connecting to technology and critical social services, and creating spaces to gather and organize. 

The plan will enable the Library to respond appropriately and effectively to changes in community demographics, technology and telecommunications development, emerging service expectations, aging facilities, and other future needs. 

Once complete, the plan will be a significant asset to the Library’s ongoing planning efforts, and a guide to the ideal sequence for branch improvements.
