May 25, 2017

OAKVILLE, ON – Oakville Public Library (OPL) is pleased to announce the launch of its 2016-19 Strategic Plan.

With a focus on expanding its resources, revitalizing its spaces, and promoting lifelong learning, this new plan outlines the series of goals and objectives that the library will implement over the next two years.

In an effort to enhance its overall customer experience, the library determined its areas of greatest needs and developed overarching goals and objectives to work toward accomplishing.

The plan encompasses initiatives such as creating fully accessible branches with thriving atmospheres, extending the library’s engagement by participating in additional community events, and increasing the library’s fundraising goals.

“Our team worked diligently to address the wants and needs of our community in this plan,” says Councillor Jeff Knoll, Board Chair. “We put a lot of thought and effort into developing our strategic direction, and we are excited to start working toward achieving our organizational goals.”

The planning process took several months to complete and included numerous consultations, interviews, surveys, and discussions with key library stakeholders and community members.

“OPL has come a long way over the past few years, and we have many exciting plans for the future,” says Knoll. “With this new plan in place, we are able to focus on a direction and we are able to envision what our library will look like in 2019.”
