On December 17, the Library's consultant Erin Gong and I presented the Troy Public Library’s Strategic Plan for 2013-2015 to the Troy City Council. The plan is the culmination of seven months of collaboration and discussion, to determine what the best course is for the Library over the next three years. The feedback from the community – through a survey and four focus groups – helped to inform the plan and provide direction on what the public wants to see from the Library. (The complete text of the plan is attached below.)
I am extremely pleased by the results of this process, and am proud of this plan. It is ambitious, but I believe it is manageable and that we can achieve the goals it sets forth. The Library’s three primary goals are to:
1) Excel at user experience
2) Increase awareness of library value and vibrancy
3) Build a robust infrastructure for community support and partnership
You will hear more about these goals in the coming months. However, please know that your feedback is always appreciated. Email me at C.Russ@troymi.gov or call 248.524.3544.
