The Barberton Public Library began a new strategic planning process in January 2022 in order to prepare for its future after completing its last strategic plan in 2015 and implementing aspects of a plan created in 2017. The Library is committed to serving its community and was equally committed to involving the community in the strategic planning process through a Focus Group and a Community Survey. The new strategic plan seeks to serve the community with relevant and innovative outreach initiatives as well as creative, current, and accessible spaces. The plan also builds upon the Library’s strong history of staff excellence. The strategic plan is organized around three strategic goals, each supported by strategic objectives and action items. The plan serves as a guide for decision-making and effective resource allocation. Above all, the plan reinforces Barberton Public Library’s commitment to its values, vision, and mission and positions it as an essential and ever-evolving asset, enhancing every chapter of the lives of community members.
