Over the last ten months, our strategic planning committee has done a thorough analysis of the community demographics, held staff focus groups, interviewed key influencers in Saline County, and sent out a survey to our patrons, of which 250 responded. This process gave us insight into the needs and wants of our community, which helped our committee to narrow down key themes and goals.
By improving the collection, we will reduce wait times for materials and make our collections more accessible. We will also work to improve our space by creating an inviting, welcoming library with an accessible outdoor space, while increasing staff visibility and morale. Engaging adults and collaborating with community groups will further improve our programming and outreach, while supporting and being available to the community will improve inclusion and opportunity.
This strategic plan will serve as a roadmap in our efforts to be the community hub for Saline County while providing free, educational, and entertaining programs and services. As always, we would love to hear your feedback and suggestions on how we can continue to better serve our community. We look forward to working together for the betterment of Saline County!
Thank you for your continued support of this library! We move forward together!
