Over the course of the last ten months, our strategic planning committee did a thorough analysis of the community and 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 ideas on what our community needs and wants which helped our committee narrow down key themes and goals.

By improving the collection, we will reduce wait time 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 be more for the community. We also look forward to any opportunities you see in which we can work together for the betterment of Saline County.

Thank you for your continued support of this library. Together we hope to enrich lives, provide the unexpected, and be more.
