Strategic Direction Report 2021-2023

Strategic Direction 2021–2023

We launch this strategic plan in the midst of a global pandemic. Our planning and community outreach to gather input for this plan were far different than in the past. Despite the anxieties of everyday life and the major barriers to providing services we faced in 2020, we feel confident our updated mission, vision, values, and goals reflect the results of our survey and partner discussions.

Our community is passionate about our Library and sees us as a catalyst for community growth and well being. The plan represents most of the concepts formerly in place, although the language and focus have shifted in meaningful ways to be more representative of our world and community view in 2020. There is an increased emphasis on enriching our community through equitable and impartial access, as well as inclusiveness, diversity, and supporting respectful discourse.

The plan is resilient and will guide us through social, political, technological, and economic changes. Read the 2021–23 strategic direction report, including an appendix with maintenance and technology replacement plans.
