La Plata, February 21, 2017 – As the library plans for innovative and meaningful communitycentered services input is sought from county residents and supporters. The library invites residents as a part of the implementation of the strategic plan to communicate their thoughts and suggestions by way of a several town hall meetings happening across the county.

In February of 2016, Executive Director, Janet Salazar led the 6 month planning process for developing a comprehensive three-year strategic plan. “We realize we have some work to do to create a 21st century library system. We are asking our community to share their thoughts and ideas on current and future library programming, services, and facilities.” Salazar responds.

The information received from the town halls will help the library in planning and prioritizing its current services, allocating resources, and identifying NEW library services and programs. Public input will also help the library prepare for the possibility of building new branches and making building improvements at current locations, including the construction of a new La Plata branch.
