Every public library should periodically conduct a community assessment. The insights your library gains through a community assessment will inform program planning and allow you to align library priorities with the needs and interests of your community.

In this 90-minute online course, you’ll learn how to develop and deploy your own community assessment, and effectively apply your results to enhance strategic decision-making and action planning around community needs and goals.

This module supports Benchmarks 1, 3, 4, and 6.
