Inside the Reading Branch Library

Strategic Investments

Strategic Investments are being reserved to fund lower-cost, high impact improvements at 26 library branches across the county. For example, a strategic investment could be specialized furniture, new technology, a site improvement, or another lower-cost, high-impact purchase. One-fifth of the 40 branches were constructed or underwent a significant renovation within the last 15 years, and generally all of these will provide many more years of continued service. For those locations identified to receive a capital maintenance project, and for other locations that are not identified to receive a design project in the next ten years, a Strategic Investment is proposed. The Library will be developing a separate process for Strategic Investment branches, incorporating community and staff input to efficiently identify and deliver these investments.
