Madison Public Library Invites Community Input for Strategic Planning
Wisconsin Eagle/10242903

~ The Madison Public Library is seeking community input to develop a three-year strategic plan for library services. The Library has partnered with The Care Plan to guide the strategic planning process and is encouraging everyone, from daily library users to those who have never set foot in their libraries, to share their thoughts through a short survey or by participating in a virtual feedback session.

Greg Mickells, Library Director, said: "Public input is so essential to helping us create a plan that ensures library services, collections and programs meet a variety of diverse community needs, now and in the future."

The survey will be open until September 30th and the virtual feedback session will take place on September 20th from 12-1:30pm. All information gathered from the survey and virtual feedback session will be anonymized and summarized along with staff feedback, library use data, and larger national trends. This information will then be used to create the strategic plan which will be shared with the public in winter of 2023.
