New Planning Article added to this Week’s Module

Hey all – Just added this to the Planning module:

Working Hand in Hand

One of the clearest models for how to conduct community-led planning in libraries comes from the Working Together Project, an initiative that created the Community-Led Libraries Toolkit. The model has five broad stages: (1) systematically build knowledge about community through community assessment; (2) identify community goals and needs; (3) plan services; (4) deliver services; and (5) evaluate results. The stages themselves are similar to traditional library-led planning, but the way each stage unfolds is very different.

Might be useful! Also note that for the planning assignment you do not have to worry about the funding, space, etc – think of that as provided. But I think it is a good thing to ponder how to include the community in what you are doing.
