    Westminster Public Library has taken a hyper-local focus and created innovative strategies to satisfy the needs of all patrons in our service area. Explore how to create a data-driven community profile and how to use profiles to advocate for inclusive collections, programs, reference and readers' advisory services, and outreach that represent the needs of a diverse community. Take away the tools and resources to create your own profiles.

    Jessi Barrientos is a librarian at Westminster Public Library in Westminster, Colorado. She is a book-loving, Broadway-singing, yoga-posing, collection development librarian who advocates for readers' advisory, genre fiction, and relationship building. She has 10+ years of library experience and has worked for Jeffco Libraries, High Plains Public Library, and Westminster Public Library. For the last 3 years, she has been responsible for growing a collection to reflect the unique needs of the City of Westminster.
