I hate to beg, but this time I have to. The Library needs your help in determining its future direction.
We began working on a new strategic plan for the library back in January, conducting focus groups with adults, parents of children from pre-K through 8th grade, and teens. In all, we spoke with over 100 individuals, and learned a lot (I will share some of their suggestions later in the week).
This past Friday, we brought together 50 individuals—business people, leaders of not-for-profits, educators, and library users—to discuss the most pressing issues facing the White Plains community, and how the Library can best respond to these issues. We got some terrific ideas.
Now I need your input, whether you are a regular Library user, infrequent user, or have hardly stepped foot inside the Library. Please respond to these questions:
- What is the Library doing well?
- What is the Library doing poorly?
- What aren’t we doing, that we should be doing?
Send your responses to me, Brian Kenney, firstname.lastname@example.org. It can be a sentence or a ten-page paper. Anonymous or not.
Often times, strategic plans end up getting filed away (or lost on the web site). But I promise, we will use this plan to direct the programs and services that the Library provides to the White Plains community. So let your voice be heard!
