Nyack Library Long Range Plan
Every public library in New York State is required to undertake a long-range planning effort to evaluate current services, to assess community demographics and dynamics, to clarify the role of the library for the board, staff and the community, to identify priorities for resource allocation and to ensure that the library remains a relevant and viable institution. In January the Nyack Library Board of Trustees began thinking and discussing the future of the library. Over the past 8 months, Trustees on the Long-Range Planning Committee and Library Director Angela Strong worked with all the trustees and the staff to evaluate the accomplishments of the current 2016-2021 Long-Range Plan, and to collect information for the development of the next plan. In August we conducted a community survey to gather data about how the library is used and viewed by the public, and the next step is to offer a forum for community members to share their feedback and ideas directly with us.
Members of the public are invited to attend the Community Forum to further explore the future of the Nyack Library on Wednesday, September 22nd at either 10:30 am or 7:00 pm. The forum will be held in the Community Meeting Room.
