  8. 8. Community Vision Plan Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) • The Library does not have a future plan for the Union Branch building. This Community Vision Plan is the public engagement process to create a plan. • There is no budget set for the Union Branch recommendations. The library wants to know what the community needs are first, then plan financial investments accordingly. • The definition of "21st Century Library" will be co-created by each branch community. The Cleveland Public Library recognizes each community has different needs and priorities.
