Group 2 Final Report Released


The CPL150 Community Vision Plan | Group 2 Report includes recommendations for four branch communities:

  • Brooklyn Branch: Brooklyn Centre neighborhood
  • East 131st Branch: Mt Pleasant, Corlett, & Union-Miles neighborhoods
  • Mt Pleasant Branch: Mt Pleasant neighborhood
  • South Brooklyn Branch: Old Brooklyn neighborhood

The report articulates a wide-range of community priorities and reveals a clearer vision of the library’s role in each target area. Recommendations are organized into four nested levels of library experience: building, grounds, neighborhood, and services.

Neighborhood asset maps, programming concepts, and visual renderings produced through this process enable CPL to now conduct a finer grain analysis of the operational costs, interior architectural feasibility, and financial investments required to commit limited resources appropriately.

In 2019, the Cleveland Public Library will celebrate its 100 year anniversary. The CPL150: Community Vision Plan provides a road-map for actions worthy to celebrate in 2019 and beyond.
