Media Release
For Immediate Release

Andrea Tavener

Approved and Adopted by the Library Board of Trustees.

Every two years, the library undertakes a thorough strategic planning process designed to reexamine its vision, mission, values, and strategic goals. A large number of staff representing various areas of the library participated in this endeavor, together with community leaders, stakeholders and members of the library’s Board of Trustees.

The Nevada State Library, Archives, and Public Records requires that every library in the state of Nevada has a two year strategic plan. The 2018-2020 Strategic Plan, was presented by Library Director Jeff Scott, and was unanimously approved and adopted by the Washoe County Library System Board of Trustees at their last meeting.

For this strategic planning cycle, Washoe County Library System used the Planning for Results process. Planning for Results was developed by the Public Library Association and provides support through training and guidebooks. The Washoe County Library System’s goal was to ensure that they address the most critical needs of the community while at the same time being good stewards of the public trust.
