Strategic Plan 2018-2022

The 2014-2018 Library Board has produced a Legacy Document following more than a year of consultations with the community, staff, and experts.  The result is a SMART document (strategic, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time oriented). The Strategic Plan is produced in two versions:

To assist in achieving the Strat Plan and its vision over the next four years, the Library Board will release annual action plans and the staff will develop an annual workplan.  Additionally, the board committee structure, as of October 2018, has been aligned to three of the goals, while the fourth falls under the CEO's roles. The committee and CEO reports shall directly align to the Strategic Plan, action plan, and work plan for transparency and accountability to the vision and Strategic Goals of the Board.
