Strategic Planning and Advocacy

The Vermont Department of Libraries recommends that each library trustee board develops and implements a strategic planning process that is feasible for the community, involves community input, and results in a usable document that guides the library into the future. Advocacy often goes hand-in-hand with strategic planning, and the process of planning can be a form of advocacy and can result in advocacy-related activities. Feel free to use the following collection of resources as you plan for the future of your library. If you have questions about strategic planning, contact Lara Keenan, Consultant for Governance and Management.
