The Cromaine District Library (CDL) of Hartland, has announced the launch of its new strategic planning process, intended to produce CDL’s next strategic plan, an outward-facing document laying out the Library’s vision, mission, goals, key initiatives and priorities for the next 3-5 years.
“By revisiting our mission and clarifying our priorities, we hope to ensure that library services remain a vital and valuable resource for every resident of our Library District for years to come,” said Director Sarah Niedert.
To inform the strategic plan, the Library is creating several opportunities to hear from community residents and stakeholders about what’s important to them. The Library is working with ReThinking Libraries, a strategic planning firm that specializes in assisting libraries to become vibrant, 21st century institutions. Harnessing the facilitation strengths and experience of the ReThinking Libraries team, CDL will be conducting interviews, focus groups, surveys and meetings to ensure its new plan reflects the valuable perspectives and insights of those the Library serves, as well as community partners and collaborators.
Cromaine District Library encourages those who live, work, and study in the library’s district (which includes all of Hartland Consolidated School District, including Hartland Township and portions of Brighton, Deerfield, Genoa, Oceola and Tyrone Townships) to lend their voices to the planning process by taking a short survey and/or attending one of the planned focus group sessions. Officials say they want to hear from all stakeholders, not just regular library users.
Cromaine District Library’s Survey is accessible by clicking the link or scanning the QR codes above, and should take 10-15 minutes to complete. Paper copies are also available in the library. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CDLPR-Media
