Strategic Plan: 2016 -2019
For 100 years the Eastern Monroe Public Library has played a critical role in our
community. It is the place where children discover the world of books, stories and
words, where teenagers find help with their school projects, where adults escape
a hectic day by browsing for books by favorite authors, where job seekers locate
resources and expertise to move forward, and where the entire community finds
engaging programs to expand their personal and civic horizons.
This strategic plan was adopted as a tool for guiding library staff and the Board of Trustees
going forward. The staff and Board of Trustees developed the plan, with input from
the community. The plan identifies key priorities for the next few years for meeting the
needs of people of all ages, for maintaining the library’s physical and technological
infrastructure, and for responding to rapid change.
