GENERAL INFORMATION

Library System Describe demographic, economic, and other facts about your system that influenced the development of this and other system plans.

Eastern Shores Library System is a multi-county federated library system. It has thirteen member libraries that vary in size. There are five village libraries (under 5,000 pop.), three city libraries (6,000 to 12,000 pop.), three joint libraries (5,000 to 25,000 pop.) and a large city library (over 50,000 pop.). The system is 741 square miles with a population of 201,902 in 2010. The 2010 count is an increase of 3.6% in population from the 2000 Census. The Library System serves approximately 4% of the state’s population.

74% of the population resides in cities and villages and 26% resides in towns.

The 2010 Census for the age group distribution is: 0-18: 23.8%; 18-24: 7.6%; 25-64: 53.7%; and 65+: 14.9%. There is a 7.9% nonwhite population in the system, most being Hispanic, Asian or African American.There are 53,775 people (27%) who live in communities without libraries, 19% more than in 2000. This is primarily due to the Town of Cedarburg decision to discontinue its joint library agreement with the Cedarburg Public Library.

Sheboygan County is an important manufacturing county. Most of its area is considered rural, but a small number of its residents (about 2%) are involved in farming.

39% of the nonfarm workforce are employed in the "goods producing" industries:

construction, manufacturing, durable goods and nondurable goods. 51% of the nonfarm workers are employed in the wholesale and retail trade establishments and other service industries. Recent reports show that it has an unemployment rate that is below the state and national average. More people commute into Sheboygan County for employment, than Sheboygan County residents commute out. Most of the people commuting into Sheboygan County are from Manitowoc County. Sheboygan County’s per capita income is above the state average and national average.

Ozaukee County's rural population is in the northern half of the county. A littlemore than 3% of the population is engaged in farming. 26% of the workers are employed in "goods producing" industries. The growth in service industries is demonstrated by the more than 60% of the workforce employed in wholesale and retail trade services. Ozaukee County’s unemployment rate is currently below the state and national average. 52% of Ozaukee County workers commute out of the county for employment, however residents of Waukesha, Milwaukee, Sheboygan and Washington Counties commute into Ozaukee County for employment. Ozaukee County’s per capita income is above the state and national average.

Describe significant needs and problems that influenced the development of this and other system plans.

1. Reduction in staff due to budget constraints. A lack of an increase in state aid funding in the biennium affects the level of services that the library system can provide to its member libraries.

2. The System libraries are also financially strained by the municipal funding, levy limits, whether self imposed or state imposed, placed property taxes affects municipal funding for the libraries.

3. EasiCat (the shared library automation system) plays a major role in how the system provides interloan, delivery and cataloging services.

4.System Libraries are dependent on the system for certain computerized services and technical support. Especially concerning data management and network maintenance.

5. On-going assessment of the impact of technology now and in the future.

6.Patron demands for electronic materials affects the decisions libraries make about allocation of resources.
