JMRL Seeks Community Feedback on Strategic Planning
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – The Jefferson-Madison Regional Library (JMRL) and the Library Board of Trustees have begun work on the Library’s next strategic plan, covering Fiscal Years 2025-2029. JMRL’s strategic plan charts a path for the Library to best meet its mission in service to the people of Albemarle, Charlottesville, Greene, Louisa, and Nelson.
“The current strategic plan has led to many initiatives that have improved library service to the community,” said Library Director David Plunkett. “For instance, expanding Bookmobile services in Louisa and Nelson counties, the addition of contactless pickup lockers at six branches, and a new and improved website. Now, we’d like to get community feedback on planning the next five years of library services.”
Community members can share their thoughts on current and future library services by participating in JMRL’s Strategic Planning Survey. The survey can be accessed online at jmrl.org. Paper copies are available at any JMRL branch. Survey participants are also invited to enter a drawing for a gift certificate.
JMRL will be accepting survey responses throughout September and October of 2023. Once expanding this engagement phase of planning is complete, the Library Board will discuss strategic plan drafts at public meetings in early 2024, and adopt a completed plan by the Board’s June 2024 meeting.
