STRATEGIC PLAN

Every three years, the Clearview Library District undergoes a collaborative and community-driven process to develop a strategic plan. (View details on the Strategic Plan process.) This plan establishes a clear vision for serving our community and fulfilling our mission. It acts as a guide for the future direction of the library, building upon past strategic plans with our mission as the cornerstone of all we commit to our community: Cultivate Curiosity. Enlighten the Mind. Strengthen the Community.

For the 2020-2022 plan, the process focused on an extensive listening period — gathering feedback in a multitude of ways. Each one of the 3,500 comments were logged, read, and used by the Advisory Group to inform this plan.

Four common themes emerged as priorities. Click on each priority to learn more about the related goals, action items, and completion status.

Updates

Each quarter, library staff will provide an update to the Library Board of Trustees, which will be posted on this page. We’ll report on the progress of our action items, as well as highlights of key initiatives and any challenges that we face along the way. In addition, the Advisory Group will meet twice each year for an update on the progress of the plan.
