The Lavender Library Board of Directors has embarked on an important strategic planning project! Strategic planning is important because it gives us a chance to know and articulate where we’re going, it allows the community to hold us accountable to what we’re trying to do, and it allows us to show potential donors and grant review committees the work we’re doing and plan to do.

We held our first meeting on Monday, August 7th. Over the course of the next few months, we will hold planning meetings, a community forum, and we’ll announce and post the results of our work. Potential results include: revised mission and vision statements; long-term and short-term goals; strategies for meeting goals; planned indicators of achievement; and an assessment/reporting plan.

A drop-in-style community forum is tentatively planned for Friday October 20th, from 4:30-8PM at the Lavender Library. Stay tuned for details.

At the end of the initial process, this page will be the home of our future strategic plan and updates on how we’re doing.
