FY17 Annual Report

Director’s Report FY17

Highlights:

  • Bookmobile hits the streets
  • Enhanced virtual branch features
  • Friends Foundation is 25 years old
  • Bathroom security cameras outlawed by State Legislature

The word for the year was “Bookmobile” – planning, planning, planning, training, training, training, doing, doing, doing. As big a project as the bookmobile is though, it is only a relatively small component of what makes us the busiest public library in Iowa. This year we offered a great diversity of programming and collections, made significant improvements in how we use technology to deliver information and serve our community, began a year-long celebration to mark the impact of the Friends Foundation’s 25 years of support, and faced some challenges to offering a safe and secure environment.

FY16 Annual Report

  • Bookmobile Service approved/planning begins
  • Music-is-the-Word programming
  • 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten begins
  • Digital Johnson County cooperative launched
  • Circulating laptops

Reviewing the highlights of the year just ended, I think it’s evident that the new strategic plan provides an opportunity to take a fresh look at traditional services. Libraries, like all service organizations across the country, are focusing on the customer in new ways. Locally, we are working hard to connect, engage and enrich the lives of the people we serve. I have worked in libraries for decades and one of the things that I love about them is the mutual support they provide and the collaboration in which they engage. In our community, it’s not just libraries, but many other organizations that all work jointly toward the common good. Looking ahead to bookmobile service, continued growth of Digital Johnson County, great programs with new and old partners, reaching out to vulnerable populations, and being more proactive about capturing local history, I feel we are being responsive to our community. I’m looking forward to it.

FY15 Annual Report

The Library's 2015 fiscal year saw an all-time high for number of visits. 826,217 people entered our doors – more than 2,200 people every day. This increase was reflected in program attendance, which also reached record numbers at all levels: children's, teens and adults.

Connect-Engage-Enrich: Library patrons will see these words often in the coming years, as they are the focus of our new strategic plan, approved in July by the Library Board of Trustees. The Library will focus on ways to:

  • Connect people with information and offer opportunities for enjoyment and personal growth.
  • Engage people in discovery, learning and the community.
  • Enrich the quality of life in Iowa City through diversity, imagination and creativity.

Collaboration is one of the values highlighted in the strategic plan, with partnerships playing significant role in library activities. Digital Johnson County, a sharing agreement with Coralville Public Library and North Liberty Community Library that combines all of our eBook and digital audiobook collections, is our most recent partnership. Residents of all three communities and all of our contracting areas have access to the same electronic collections.

Several changes were implemented last year to connect people with materials faster, including increasing the number of holds a person can have from eight to ten. This, combined with the ability of patrons to reserve items currently on the shelves, accounts for a ten percent increase in holds overall.

One patron championed the change because it is challenging to browse when she visits the library with her young children. "I really appreciate being able to pick books up at the front so I don’t disturb other people. This service you offer makes my life so much better and easier."

Thank you for another great year, and we hope ICPL continues to help CONNECT you with the information and resources that ENGAGE and ENRICH your life.

FY14 Annual Report

The Library's 2014 fiscal year ended June 30, and the numbers show another busy year.

Many positive comments have been received about the completion of the Library's "facelift," a two-year project to make improvements throughout the building.

The new Koza Family Teen Center on the second floor has attracted many new teens to programming and other events just for them. If you or family members are in 7th through 12th grades, be sure to stop by during special after-school hours to check out whats happening.

The renovation project also saw improvements in the Ellen Buchanan Children's Room where child-oriented technology advancements - including our Library's first interactive touch table - were provided. We thank local software developers created innovative software for the table. Their work continues this year in an effort to keep the Library's young patrons learning while playing.

The improvements made possible by the remodeling project would not have been so significant without your generous charitable contributions. Thank you for your increased support of two fundraising events. Donations topped $17,000 for the second annual Library Links Golf Classic and the Arts & Crafts Bazaar.

The importance of summer reading programs is receiving new attention both nationally and locally. Our community responded with record participation by all ages - babies, children, teens, and adults. For the first time, we partnered with two other libraries that serve students in the Iowa City Community School District, Coralville and North Liberty, to track registrations by school. A grant from the United Way of Johnson and Washington Counties helped us provide weekly programming at Iowa City Neighborhood Centers this summer.

The use of library collections remains strong. Although circulation of some traditional collections is down, electronic collections saw an 18 percent increase. Many people know what they want and appreciate the convenience of placing holds electronically anytime. The number of reserves placed is up 15 percent.

In FY14, the Iowa City Public Library finished its two-year renovation project, with improvements throughout the building.
