Strategic Plan

Wayne Public Library Strategic Plan 2017 – 2020

As a champion of lifelong learning, Wayne Public Library is a place to quench curiosity, access technology, and explore new ideas, hobbies and careers. Increasingly libraries, including the Wayne Public Library, also offer patrons a neutral space to meet their neighbors to discuss and resolve important issues as well as to share knowledge and information.

“A good library shows that this is a community that cares about learning, that cares about our children and their future; that cares about senior citizens and their need to enrich themselves with interesting books, etc..”

Wayne Public Library needs a few good volunteers from the public to help with our strategic planning process. The process will take approximately a year of varied meetings.
