A Message from
the Future of LPL!
the Livingston Public Library develops its strategic plan for the
next five years, we are eager to invite our community members to
share their thoughts to help determine our future areas of focus. A
strategic plan helps to guide year-over-year services, and a major
part of the planning includes essential feedback from our community.
our community survey, focus groups, and stakeholder interviews, we
would like to extend an invitation to all members of the community to
our upcoming virtual town halls on Wednesday, November 1 from at 11am
and at 7pm to learn more about the process, reflect on current
library services, and share your thoughts to help us further define
the library ’s direction for its strategic plan.
virtual interactive sessions are a way for us to gather your thoughts
on and contributions to our strategic plan and share your
expectations for the library's work. The session will last 60 to 90
minutes, and you will find the most value if you are able to remain
for the full time. Content will be repeated at each session, so
there's no need to attend more than one.
