I think that it is so important to think about ALL of the different people that use the library. This can be difficult at times, because there really are a lot of different groups out there, so it only makes sense that some are bound to be overlooked. Whether or not a certain population is "officially" part of the institution that houses the library is really irrelevant--that is to say, the people that matter to the library are all of the different populations that use the library. At the academic library where I work, community members are also allowed to come in and use the library's services. Even though they are not perceived to be a major stakeholder for the library, they are a part of the people that use the library and therefore contribute to its existence.
