Libraries are in a state of constant change

from new technologies, shifting demographics and increased competition. Providence can help those libraries that recognize the need to change but don't know what to do or how to do it.

We have a team of associates who can address the issues of change in a holistic approach, or in a targeted fashion focusing on specific areas e.g. serving “New Americans;” children, teens and families; senior citizens and “boomers”; and streamlining processes such as materials selection, acquisitions, processing, circulation, etc.

Selecting Providence Associates guarantees desired results! We would not hesitate to work with/hire them again.
