Mission & Vision
The mission of the Addison Public Library is to foster a love of reading, to promote lifelong learning, and to provide recreational resources.
The Addison Public Library is the heart of a diverse community, connecting people with ideas and information.
Strategic Plan 2012-2017
The Addison Public Library began the work of developing a new strategic plan in the summer of 2011. The process included a thorough analysis of community and library data and information gathered through a series of focus groups with library users, community leaders, elected officials, and staff.
This strategic plan is a flexible blueprint for the Library Board and staff. The plan’s goals and related objectives provide direction that will help prioritize Library resources and activities between 2012 and 2017. The Library staff and Board of Trustees will assess the objectives periodically to gauge our progress. Objectives may be changed or added to reflect actual experience and will be responsive to changing community needs. The strategies needed to achieve the goals will be reviewed annually.
The Library staff has primary responsibility and accountability for implementing these goals. The Library Board of Trustees, which endorsed this strategic plan and serves as the policy-setting body for the Library, will provide oversight and leadership.
The Friends of the Library will align their priorities and activities with those of the Library and provide valuable input, resources, and services in helping the Library address these goals.
