During the first half of 2010, the Library, in collaboration with the library consulting firm of Himmel & Wilson, launched a strategic planning process by conducting online and mail surveys, focus groups, personal interviews and convening a Planning Committee to represent the Eau Claire community. In August 2010, the Library Board adopted a strategic plan for the Library for 2011-2015. The plan sets forth themes with goals and examples of potential strategies. Library staff has formulated a work plan with strategies and activities designed to guide and support fulfillment of the objectives. Regular review and modification of the work plan will further ensure the library's ability to successfully implement the strategic plan.
