What is a Strategic Plan?

A Strategic Plan is a systematic process of envisioning a desired future, and translating this vision into broadly defined goals, objectives, and a sequence of steps to achieve them.

The Purpose of Escondido Public Library's Strategic Plan/What We Want to Know from You!

Creating a strategic plan for the library with participation of community members helps define the library’s core direction, establish realistic goals and objectives, communicate these goals and objectives to the public and officials, reallocate resources to the highest service priorities, and create measurement tools to establish progress and successes.

What are your responses to the following questions? What other services are a priority for you, your family, and this community? Share your comments and feedback by submitting the form below, or come to one of our meetings.

  • Do you feel welcome and safe at the library?

  • Are there any subjects that you would like to see highlighted in the library either with books and other material or in programs?
