Plan of Service

The Plan of Service sets priorities and goals for library services, based on a community needs assessment. Our 2021-2023 Plan of Service focuses on three goals:

  • Support for Education and Lifelong Learning: Residents will have opportunities for learning and support to develop their knowledge, skills, and understanding.
  • Support for Technology Access and Digital Literacy: Residents will have access to technology and opportunities to develop their information fluency and digital literacy skills so they can participate with confidence in digital environments.
  • Support for Community Connection and Engagement: Residents will have opportunities to connect with each other and local resources to increase their awareness and/or use of community resources and feel engagement in the community.
