New Haven Free Public Library

The New Haven Free Public Library is a critical community institution that serves more than 130,000 residents across the City of New Haven with 5 locations, a Readmobile book van and thousands of online and digital resources available 24/7. Each year, the Library welcomes more than 600,000 visitors, hosts 2,300 community programs and provides a place where everyone is welcome. 

The Project

Civic Mind is working with the City's Librarian and Director and the New Haven Free Public Library Foundation to expand fundraising efforts. Work included re-structuring annual development operations, strategic planning for FY17 fundraising, the design of a citywide capital campaign to move and expand a library branch, improve the collection, support community services and raise the Library's profile.
