Strategic Plan

Our strategic plan is a community-centered project designed to create a path for a successful future for the Appleton Public Library.

The plan is the culmination of a nearly two-year process, which incorporates what we heard from the community during 20 community conversation sessions, and a community survey of our strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.

During the strategic planning process, a 10-member Community Advisory Committee was formed to analyze the data from the community, as well as information from staff and experts in the fields of visioning, planning and design.

With the help of the Community Advisory Committee, our plan focuses on seven strategies that will serve as the building blocks for the services we offer for years to come.
