Maplewood Library’s Strategic Plan

Maplewood Memorial Library has created a Strategic Plan for the years 2013-2015, which lays the foundation for a 21st century library.  In 2013, our centennial year, we have a tremendous opportunity to look toward the future. We look forward to embracing our role as a place to connect and learn, a hub for innovation and technology, an incubator for creativity, a sustainable community resource, and a destination for community gathering that reflects the tremendous beauty, diversity, and intellect of our town.

Maplewood Library’s new Strategic Plan is the result of a yearlong study by a Planning Committee composed of library department heads and experienced staff. The Plan was greatly informed by community input gathered through a broad public survey, a community forum comprised of leaders, stakeholders and library users, and focus groups for key segments of our population.

If you have any comments or questions about the plan, please call us at
