Planning Priorities

In 2015 the Library Board of Trustees adopted a strategic plan with four main priority areas: Communication, Programming, Welcoming Environment and Physical Space. 

In a nutshell, your library will continue providing a warm and welcoming environment and great programming. We are pursuing additional and augmented means to communicate our upcoming programs and services to our community. Most importantly, we are out of space in our beautiful 1912 Carnegie building and need to remedy this problem.
