Homelessness is a product of a complicated interaction between social and structural forces, and it is currently one of the most important problems that our society must address. This report analyzes the links between the Marina Branch library, the patrons who are homeless, and the local community agencies that provide support for them. 56 people took part in a structured survey that was carried out earlier. According to the findings of the investigation, there is a significant relationship between the library and its patrons who are homeless. This is due to the fact that the services available from the local community agencies are quite limited. I have come to the conclusion that a connection needs to be made between the bridge that connects the Marina Branch library and the local community agencies in order for the patrons who are homeless to benefit from the resources that those agencies can provide.
