STRATEGIC PLANNING

example thumbnail

You're Invited...

Our strategic plan wants your input!

The Baldwin Library has started a crucial strategic planning process to ensure that it is supporting the needs of the community. This endeavour will chart the growth and progress the library will be committed to making over the next several years. We want to hear your vision and your ideas for the programs and services you would like to see us explore and ways that we can work together to ensure the Library remains a strong, sustainable community asset.

Join the Board of Directors of the Baldwin Borough Library for a conversation about improving library services as a part of the library’s strategic planning process.
