As the nation’s changing demographics transform neighborhoods — currently, the U.S. minority population of 37 percent is projected to grow to 47 percent by 2050 — financially pressured library leaders strive for ways to better serve a steadily diversifying population while offering traditional services amid growing technology needs. With stagnated or shrinking budgets, branch managers are faced with making decisions with lasting impact, from book selection to hiring a bilingual or multilingual staff serving communities with rapidly shifting demographics, often placing added strain on already scare resources.
