In 2011, the Board of Trustees completed a strategic plan that will not only support our efforts to find a new home for the Library, but serves as an essential tool for ongoing planning of services, programs and budget allocation. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I would like to thank all of you who participated in shaping the plan.
