Albany County Public Library

 

Final Documents

The Albany County Board of Commissioners hired Godfrey's Associates, a firm of library consultants, to conduct a building needs assessment of the Laramie library in Spring 2009.  The library's five year plan included such an assessment.  The consultants visted Laramie, interviewing focus groups, elected officials, and boards (library, foundation, and Friends of the Library).  The final report is below with supporting documents to the right and preliminary documents to the left.  Print copies are available for check out.
