This year the Library will be gathering data and crafting its next Strategic Plan.  Thank you to everyone who filled out our survey this fall/winter.  It was valuable input that will help us create a road map to update our services to best meet the needs of you and the community. We are continuing to gather and analyze data, and will post more updates later this summer.

Thank you!
