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.

Borrow from other Libraries

Last Updated September 24, 2020

Interlibrary Connect and Illume are open again!

If you weren’t able to find the item you wanted in our collection, try searching for it in other

Libraries in BC.  On the Search Catalogue page, change the Library drop-down to search  BC InterLibrary Connect (at the very top of the list of libraries).  Put a hold on the book and it will be transferred for pick up at Vanderhoof.  Please return books to the Vanderhoof Library.

If you cannot find it through BC InterLibrary Connect (and only then), you can also try  Illume, a catalogue for other BC libraries. If you find it at another library, request it to be delivered to your home library for pick up!  Help for Searching Illume
