Cleveland Public Library
Facilities Master Plan
2019 marks the 150th anniversary of the Cleveland Public Library, and to prepare for this milestone, CPL sought to identify how best to serve its diverse constituents with a comprehensive Facilities Master Plan. The goal of the plan was to reimagine the current library facilities to meet changing service trends and community needs with an eye towards the future. The plan considered options for the renovation, expansion, consolidation, or relocation of all the Library’s buildings over the next decade in order to meet long-term goals.
The master plan culminated in a comprehensive, public-facing document that communicates not only the plans for the future but also the extensive community outreach, facilities assessments and demographic studies that served as the foundation for the recommendations.
