How are we doing?
State Standards for Public Libraries are broken into a three tier system with multiple goals at each level.
The most basic, Developing, has 25 goals which the library met before the standards were adopted in May 2019.
The next level, Excelling, has 23 goals which the library met before the end of 2019. The library met the Excelling standard again in 2020. We were only one of four libraries in the state to meet the Excelling standard in 2020.
The top level, Future-focused also has 23 goals. VCBC library has met 17 of the goals. We are working on completing the missing goals, items F9, F13, F14, F15, and F18, by the end of 2022.
