About the Texas Public Library Development Study

The Texas Public Library Development Study has five phases. Library consultants Himmel & Wilson began the study in December 2002. The study will culminate in a final report presented to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission in July 2003.

The study results and recommendations will be the centerpiece of open dialogue between the Texas State Library and its constituents regarding future state library programming and library development. The success of the study depends largely on the input and participation of stakeholders within the public library community. Stakeholder input will be gathered through a number of mechanisms, including focus groups, town hall meetings, surveys, and library site visits. In addition, a steering committee of public library stakeholders will guide the consultant team and serve as a resource throughout the process.
