Specifically For Children and Tweens:

In addition to these enhancements that will be coming over the next two years, we have also updated our Strategic Plan. Here is what is different about this “Strategic Road-Map” that can be found below.
- A new mission statement that concisely sums up the Library’s purpose in the community. This was approved by the Library Commission in March 2015.
- Measures and Activities have been replaced by Outcomes. Unfortunately, due to the constraints of our current facility, many of the 2010-2014 measures were not achieved. However, we accomplished many of the Activities under Consideration.
- The Community and Library Snapshots have been updated.
- An online survey was conducted in an effort to fully understand what the community wants and needs from the Library. After analyzing the survey results, staff addressed the feedback from the community in the Outcomes and those enhancements can be found listed at the top of the page.
