Strategic Planning

The Vermont Department of Libraries recommends formal planning for every library. Library directors tell us the process of creating a plan helps the library gain recognition, funding, and staffing to carry out the goals of the plan. You can use the follow collection of resources to help as you plan for the future of your library. If you have questions about strategic planning or would like assistance with the process, contact your Department of Libraries regional librarian.
