Strategic Plan 2017—2022

The library’s last strategic plan (2017-2022) resulted in the library implementing many enhancements suggested by the community, including private study spaces for individuals and small groups. These spaces were used over 1,100 times last fiscal year. Another major addition that grew out of the last strategic plan is Studio 20 South, a unique digital maker studio that serves as a creative, collaborative, and educational space providing dedicated equipment, computers, software, production, and co-working furnishings. What will we come up with next?
