The Facilities Master Plan, under consideration, will include a twenty-year outlook for facilities maintenance, and a review of future use of the Main and Branch libraries. 2018 improvements include, replacing the Automated Material Handling Service (AMHS) and a new service desk at the Pico Branch Library and new lounge furniture for the Ocean Park Branch.
In 2018, the Library will create a 3-5-year Technology Plan that will be approved by the Technology Committee and the Library Board. The plan will ensure all library facilities (Branches and Main Library) have the most up to date technology.
As incorporated in the Technology Plan, self-checkout systems will be implemented at all libraries to increase self-service opportunities to improve access and usability.
