Strategic Plan

Current Plan


In January 2017, the YDL Board of Trustees adopted an ambitious and exciting plan that drives library improvements and new community collaborations. Produced with extensive staff and stakeholder engagement, the plan lays out strategies to evaluate and continuously improve our program offerings, review and update facilities, explore new funding streams, streamline internal processes, foster a talented and diverse staff, and better communicate our services to the community.
