Library Board Reflection: Creating the 2022 Strategic Plan

by Melissa Gillespie, WDM Library Board of Trustees


Every 5 years our library undergoes a “Strategic Plan” that essentially identifies ways that we can better serve our community. The 2017 strategic plan helped us to identify needs within our facility, programming and outreach, and our collection. With the help from our wonderful West Des Moines Library Friends Foundation, we’ve been able to purchase an outreach vehicle, install the 24-Hour Valley Junction Kiosk and the complete renovation of our building – all areas of need addressed in the strategic plan.

We invite you to participate in the preparation of the 2022 Strategic Plan. We’ll be conducting online and telephone surveys and encourage you to provide your feedback and suggestions. Thank you!
