This Strategic Plan 2011-2015 for the Winnetka-Northfield Library District adopted by the Library Board of Trustees on Monday, August 15, 2011 at its regular monthly meeting represents many months of work and the invaluable participation of library district staff members, library district board members, and representatives from our communities of Winnetka and Northfield. It is a direct response to the voices of our residents and library users, heard clearly, that told us how and why they use our library district facilities and resources and how they need and want to use them in the future.
At the heart of this Plan are a new mission and vision for our Library District, followed by objectives and strategies to accomplish that mission and to fulfill that vision. The next step in our work is to create plans and describe actions to carry these strategies forward. The Library Board of Trustees will be completing this important step in the coming months with my assistance and with the assistance of library staff. Discussions and decisions will take place, as always, at the board's public meetings.
In this document I will describe for you the process followed by our Strategic Planning Committee that began in December 2009. I trust that this Plan will be recognized and received as a foundation for our library district and that it will provide clear direction as we prepare to make important decisions about the future of our services and our place at the center of our communities. It has been my honor and privilege to be the Library Director and the Chair of the Strategic Planning Committee throughout this important process and I sincerely thank and congratulate all those who worked with me along the way.
