Regional Library collections should contain a minimum of 100,000 items. Meeting and quiet study rooms will be provided. Group study rooms may be provided as space permits.
Community Libraries will vary in size depending upon available space. Community Library collections should contain a minimum of 50,000 items. Meeting rooms will be provided as space permits. Quiet study rooms and/or group study rooms may be provided as space permits.
Pop-Up/Mobile/Mini Libraries may be used to address short-term outreach needs, mobile library needs, or smaller scale library needs.
