DPL Conducts Building Space Audit

For the past couple of years, while addressing necessary maintenance issues, we’ve been eagerly preparing for the next big step – conducting a thorough space audit. To start this process, we actively collected valuable data on how our library is currently used and what people want from it in the future. This data has played a crucial role in shaping the space audit’s recommendations, which will help us create modern library spaces that meet the community’s desires and expectations. Now, with the completed audit in hand, we’re excited to discuss it in depth with the Library Board and Friends of Decorah Public Library. Together, we will turn these insights into action, transforming the library into an inclusive and vibrant environment that adapts to the changing needs of our visitors.
