2022-2027 Strategic Plan

Early in 2022, the Library’s Board of Trustees selected SBrand Solutions as a consultant for the Library’s strategic planning process. Through the course of several months, they developed a community survey and conducted personal interviews in partnership with the Board and the Library’s leadership team.

Three hundred sixty-four community members answered 20 questions and weighed in with their opinions, thoughts and ideas for the future. Twenty individuals also volunteered for more in-depth interviews. We learned a lot from the results. We hope you will read the Community Survey Results and Interview Report documents to see what members of the community have to say about the Library, present and future.

Based on these results, the Library Board and leadership team developed a new Vision, Mission and Values. The entire Library staff was involved in establishing an implementation plan with goals and timelines for the next five years. We are now in the process of fine-tuning the details. The final Strategic Plan will be ready to share in October 2022.
