 The current Friends of the Library:

  • Geraldine Pritchard
  • Wendy Clement
  • Kathy McIntyre
  • Alex Rodriquez

If you are interested in joining this group, please contact the Library.

Strategic Plan 2020-2022

Last Updated April 14, 2020

“Turning Outward to Move Forward”

Mission:  To provide access to information, education and recreation in a safe and welcoming environment.

Strategic planning is crucial to the success of any organization. It enables an organization to clearly define its mission — its reason for being; to assess the current state of the organization — an accurate picture of how things are; to identify future directions by establishing concrete and measurable goals; to develop specific actions that will support the organization’s mission; and, to make decisions on allocating is resources — capital and human resources to realize its vision.
