Just a quick post. If you’re wondering what I’ve been up to during the first 8 months of my new job, read the description of this ULC (Urban Libraries Council) award the library received recently. Our organizational realignment, still in progress, is the result of a lot of hard work by a lot of dedicated people!
An ambitious new strategic plan, adopted in May 2013 around core values of access, learning, and community involved much discussion about evolving roles for the public library. The plan led to a major organizational re-alignment and shift in staff responsibilities to better support values and strategic goals for community service.
