CGR was contracted by the Rochester Public Library to conduct a study that would help it use its fiscal resources as efficiently as possible and fulfill its mission. CGR developed a methodology and recommended that the RPL develop strategies based on both general and specific roles for the branch libraries. Some specific recommendations were that branches should focus on a limited number of key services, use cost/performance ratios to identify changes that warrant attention, and develop strategies to encourage more residents to use their neighborhood branch library.
