Lending a Helping Hand
The Corona Public Library's goal is to consistently increase the number of citizens who visit the Library.
We will achieve this by performing the following:
- actively asking citizens if they require assistance when they visit the public library
- responding to any incoming questions, concerns, comments or inquiries
- reaching out to the community during public events and programs
This goal is tracked on a monthly basis by measuring how many visitors requests are received via documentation provided by library administration and management.
By measuring how many visitors the library receives each month, keys areas of improvement can be more easily identified and resource management will improve.
This measure is important because it helps keep our library running effectively.
We love helping our citizens! Everyone who visits the Corona Public Library can ask any of our expert Library staff members for assistance. This assistance may be requested in person or remotely and from a variety of public desks. Patron requests ensure that needs are being met in a timely and professional manner by providing up-to-date information, resources, and assistance to every citizens who visits the Library.
