Hi, I work at a very progressive, busy public Library in suburban NYC and am charged with creating a community partnership database and mapping the community's assets. Is your toolbox right for me to explore? Please advise.
Thank you

Yes! The Community Tool Box is an excellent resource to help you with creating a community partnership database and mapping community assets.
Chapter 3 includes sections on identifying community assets and resources (Section 8) and tools for community mapping (Section 16). It has a number of other sections that may also include useful information about collecting data in your community. Toolkit #2 accompanies Chapter 3 and includes many resources that you might also find useful. At the bottom of each section, The Community Toolbox includes links to additional resources that can also be helpful.
Thank you for contacting us!
