We are doing the initial processes of developing our new long-range plan, which has to be updated every 5 years for ourselves and on file with the state. We are doing the traditional SWOT analysis, surveys, and focus groups but I can see adding the Community Conversations to the mix - with ongoing conversations even after the new plan is written (and we all know most plans have something already needing changing as soon as it's written). I came to this library just under a year ago, so this would be wonderful for me to get a better sense of not only the community where we are located but county-wide as we are also the only state-accredited library in the county, so we are their "official" county library as well.
