Library Board & Strategic Plan

2021-2025 Strategic Plan

This Strategic Plan reflects the collective input of our library staff, the dedicated members of the Stirling-Rawdon Public Library Board, and the response from patron and community members through a survey launched in the spring of 2021. The results of the survey showed a wide range of valued services and priorities and from it, four strategic directions have been identified which will form the basis of this plan over the next four years.

We look forward to working closely with staff, Board members and community partners to meet the identified needs of the vibrant and growing community of Stirling-Rawdon.
