Strategic Plan

Planning for our Community: 2017-2020 

The Ypsilanti District Library is embarking on a strategic planning process to cover the years 2017-2020. More details will be posted as YDL finalizes the planning process and determines opportunities for public comment and participation.

 

Previous Strategic Plan: 2011-2014

The planning process for 2011- 2014 had a strong internal focus, building a strong foundation to ensure that the Library remains current and relevant for our patrons. The plan included comprehensive capital and maintenance plans for library buildings, an aggressive technology plan, and a fund development plan will help us continue to be good stewards of public resources in a time of challenging economic times.

Previous Strategic Plan: 2007-2010

In the 2007-2010 strategic plan, YDL successfully strengthened the excellent library services that our community has come to expect. This was accomplished through the creation of a website which acts as YDL’s “virtual branch,” the expansion of service hours, the opening of a Coffee Shop at YDL-Whittaker Road, the installation of after-hours lockers which offer patrons convenient pick-up of library materials, and the establishment of an interim library location in Superior Township.

As the Titanic and her passengers sank slowly into the Atlantic Ocean after striking an iceberg late in the evening of April 14, 1912, a nearby ship looked on. The Midnight Watch is a fictional telling of what may have occurred that night on the SS Californian, and the resulting desperation of Officer Stone and Captain Lord in the aftermath of their inaction.
