MARCH 2016

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INPUT!

Thanks to all the community members who shared their feedback and ideas during the Library’s strategic planning process last year. Your responses through surveys, community forums, and other activities have helped guide the creation of our new Strategic Plan, which was approved by City Council on December 8, 2015. You can read more about the plan by visiting: http://smpl.org/StrategicPlan. Stay tuned for updates as the Library begins implementation in the coming months!
