Why Does the Library
Need a Strategic Plan?

We want to ensure we can effectively meet the needs of our community and this plan will provide a framework for setting priorities, allocating resources, and making decisions about how the library will operate, grow, and evolve.

A strategic plan will help us to:

• Respond to the needs of our users.
• Make the most of our resources.
• Stay relevant and adaptable to future changes.
• Foster connection with community partners.
• Demonstrate accountability with those we serve.
