Developing Public Library Standards
The State Library of North Carolina is working to guide public libraries into the future with new, statewide best practices and standards. Public library standards aim to complement local planning efforts allowing for responses to unique community needs while ensuring a consistent level of library service statewide.
The State Library of North Carolina is facilitating the revision of the 2012 Public Library Standards with members of the public library community in North Carolina. Together with with a working group composed of public librarians and LIS educators from across the state, SLNC expects the new standards to be released in Summer 2021.
This program is supported by grant funds from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) as administered by the State Library of North Carolina, a division of the N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources (IMLS grant number LS-246155-OLS-20).
