Strategic plan created for township library
By Lisa Brody
Bloomfield Township Public Library announced the creation of a new strategic plan for 2023-2025, defining the library's vision that is “The Place to Discover,” meaning to earn, dream, do.
According to library director Tera Moon, Bloomfield Township Public Library began the strategic planning process in the summer of 2022, hiring Fast Forward Libraries, LLC to engage in a three-phase process: Learn, Dream, Do. Library stakeholders were included in the process through surveys, focus groups, and interviews.
The stated mission of the strategic plan is to enhance the core, create responsive collections, functional and comfortable spaces and seamless digital experiences, as well as to connect the community with each other and provide opportunities to be creative through resources, technology and support. Within each of the strategic directions are respective tactical points and defined measurements of success.
“We are so proud of the work we have done on this plan,” said Moon. “I am grateful to the planning team and library board for creating a focused plan that aligns our resources with the priorities of our community.”
