Plan of Service
The Libraries Regulation requires boards to have a current plan of service, including a mission statement and goals and objectives, based on a community needs assessment.
A plan of service is more than a legal requirement; it is a great tool for managing a library. It helps a board to govern at a strategic level. It aligns the library with the community and helps increase use. It builds community support and helps fundraising and advocacy. It helps a library measure its success and identify improvements.
Wood Buffalo Regional Library initiated the community led Plan of Service in June of 2011. Staff and board are happy to share the final document available HERE.
