Saline County Library Strategic Plan 2022-2025

Are there any other areas we could improve on in the library for our 2022-2025 Strategic Plan? 10. - I think we have a great staff and an even greater leader. Our library is truly a remarkable place and I feel lucky to work here! - Increase employee recognition, training, and cross-training. Create a faster turn-around for putting new items on the shelves available for patrons. Continue research on how employees can successfully help patrons during coronavirus. Include a variety of library employees in community events. - Making the library more friendly to Spanish speakers and the Deaf community. - Getting real feedback from a variety of community members--not necessarily library users. - Prioritizing patron satisfaction - Keep virtual programming going. Include key players in Aging Community, Job Seekers, & Juvenile Detention Facility. Invite school principals to be a part of the 2022-2025 Strategic Plan - Develop a Communication Plan in-house of the Strategic Plan that is a living document that identifies key point of contact staff - Socially distanced services for parts of the community outside Benton/Bryant - Continue to grow being part of the community’s dream. - Declutter/storage options - To get out in the community more and to be a guiding light to those people that need us. We need to reach out to the parts of the community that we normally do not reach. - Outreach to lesser served areas of Saline County. - Programming that reaches past the arts and crafts. Let’s find as many areas as we have genres to engage in. - Improve in-library signage, genrefy adult fiction - Expand the statistics chart. Explain how we adapted to serving our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Showcase the Summer Reading Program, the Winter Reading Program, and our use of Sora in our partnership with local schools. Spotlight library staff members and board members who have been a part of the library for 20+ years and share stories/quotes from them as well as ask what they see for our future. - Our online connections and virtual programs seem like they will continue to be a strong and permanent part of our library. I think we need more focus and expansion in this area. - More cohesive and patron-centered programming.
