Many factors are taken into consideration when determining the need to add additional branches. Door counts and reports from staff about program attendance are all tracked on a regular basis. These reports leads to interim measures that address the needs of the community. For example, door counts at Russel Memorial Library occasionally exceed those at Central Library. That's why CPL is moving forward with expansions at that branch. With branches that do not have the physical space for expansion, CPL works with other City departments to determine how the property can most efficiently be used. Another remedy includes the installation of library kiosks and vending machines which provide 24-hour access to select materials.
