Washoe County Library System is excited to announce the start of their strategic planning process for 2021-2024, the results of which will help guide their strategy and direction in the future. The planning process will allow participants to imagine library services in a perfect world, articulate the value and role of the library to the community, and help design a blueprint for the library based on that vision.

There are several ways to get involved. The library will be hosting in-person community forums throughout the area. These community meetings will also be available to attend virtually via Zoom. In addition, an online and printed survey will be available in both English and Spanish. Information gathered at these meetings and in the surveys will then be woven into the daily work of each library branch.

Participation in the strategic planning process offers a unique opportunity to help shape the future of Washoe County Library System. According to Library Director Jeff Scott, “We’d appreciate the community’s support by attending these meetings to allow for open and honest feedback.” Scott continued, “We also ask our community members to take a few moments to complete a brief survey to help us focus our vision for the future.” Survey responses will be confidential, and the results will help guide the Library System in the development of their strategic plan.

Register for any of the upcoming Strategic Planning Forums at the following locations to participate in person or attend via Zoom:
