Library Strategic Plan
To continue offering valuable services, programs and resources, a strategic planning committee has been formed to create a three-year strategic plan for the Library. The goal of the committee is to identify community needs and move the community forward with regard to library services. A survey will be conducted and community forums held to gather input from you. Look for more information in the coming months.
