For Immediate Release Mon, 09/12/2022

Public Library Association
CHICAGO — The Public Library Association (PLA) Strategic Plan 2022—2026 is now available on the PLA website , following its unanimous approval by the PLA Board of Directors in June 2022. Informed by member surveys, member and partner interviews, and PLA leadership and staff engagements, the PLA strategic plan centers Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Justice (EDISJ) and expands PLA’s role as a platform for innovation and amplifier for sharing public library community impacts.
The PLA Board of Directors began the process of updating the strategic plan in 2021. In reviewing the five high level goals of PLA’s 2018 plan (Transformation; Leadership; Advocacy and Awareness; Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Justice; and Organizational Excellence), they found that PLA and libraries had made progress towards reaching these goals, and that the goal areas were still largely relevant.
The pandemic and national outcry for racial and social justice, and the impact of both on public libraries were key considerations in the strategic plan refresh. A lot has changed since 2018, and PLA's 2022-2026 strategic plan aims to keep pace with these changes. The plan embeds Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Justice throughout the four other refreshed strategic goals: Transformation; Professional Growth; Advocacy; and Organizational Excellence. In addition to centering EDISJ, these goals aim to focus on all library workers as critical to the success of libraries. The plan further describes PLA’s role as a trusted partner to public libraries as they work to meet community needs and serve the public good.
“It was essential to the Board to move from strategic goals previously expressed as discrete or linear and commit to how they are interconnected and supportive of one another,” said Maria McCauley, PLA President and Director of Libraries at Cambridge (MA) Public Library. “The needs and roles of library workers are dynamic, but our commitment to equity and inclusion in the profession and in our communities must be a driver for all our programs and services in a range of expressions in our diverse communities.”

We are happy to share the three-year Strategic Plan for BAPL, which addresses our top priorities and plans for the years 2022-2024. This strategic plan cycle began in an unprecedented global pandemic which has impacted the community’s health, economy, education — and the library. Despite the continuation of pandemic disruptions, themes were identified during the planning process that call for action, with initiatives that respond to changing community demographics and culture. They explore and embrace diversity and partnerships with other agencies. The initiatives are grouped under three key words of the BAPL Mission Statement: educates…informs…inspires.
This strategic plan affirms BAPL’s commitment to promote a culture of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion across all aspects of library operations.
See here for a one-page quick-look at the plan.

Strategic planning at york public library.
Beginning in 2022, York Public Library staff and Board made the decision to shift from a three-year strategic plan cycle to an annual exercise in which the Library’s priorities are determined and outlined in a strategic map for the ensuing fiscal year. The documents below have been approved by the Board of Trustees and contain a statement of our values, a snapshot of our strategic objectives, and the key initiatives we aspire to undertake to realize these goals. It has been condensed and summarized from a detailed internal document.

We are in a unique moment to shape CPL's future path. To that end, Chicago Public Library 2020-2024 Strategy lays out a vision for the future that's more important now than ever. It reflects the best of who we are, highlighting the passion and commitment of staff across all our locations.
Our 2020-2024 Strategy speaks truth to the critical role we play in our city:
- We provide free and open access to information and experiences.
- We encourage exploration and nurture learning.
- We create respectful, safe and welcoming spaces.
- We share pride and purpose.
- We value creativity and resourcefulness.
- We broaden the perception of what a library can be.
We would like to thank the CPL Board of Directors and our partners, as well as the Chicago Public Library Foundation for its support. Finally, this strategy would not have been possible without the generous support of the MacArthur Foundation.
In summer 2014, we presented Chicago Public Library 2015-2019 Strategy to respond to the evolving needs of patrons trying to learn, thrive and grow in the 21st century by nurturing learning, supporting economic advancement and strengthening communities.

2022-2027 strategic plan.
The RPL Board of Trustees created a committee led by Emily Altman, with contributions by William Yates, Christine Peterson and Garrett Sawyer. Library staff prepared an initial Strategic Plan draft drawing from a survey of the Strategic Plans prepared by benchmarked library systems in the United States. Working cooperatively, Library staff and the Trustees committee created and fine-tuned multiple iterations of the Strategic Plan, until the version you see before you was finalized.
At all times, the needs of the residents of Richmond were front and center of our thoughts. The result is a five-year plan that responds to critical needs across the City, captures opportunities to do more and addresses the future in a deliberate and thoughtful way. Our vision is of a Library that is better, more accessible, stronger — the lifelong resource that all Richmonders deserve.

Public Survey - Help Shape The Seattle Public Library's Plans for the Future
release date: 10/25/2023
The Seattle Public Library is developing a new 10-year strategic plan, and patrons and Seattle residents are invited to participate in a survey about the Library’s future direction.
The survey, which is available in 17 languages, will be available to the public online at www.spl.org/FutureSurvey from Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2023 through Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2023. The survey takes about 10-15 minutes to complete.
Public response to the survey will help shape the Library’s long-term strategic plan. The Library has also sought input from:
- Library patrons at branch Community Conversations with the Chief Librarian;
- Dozens of community partners serving Seattle’s many diverse communities;
- Library leadership and staff; and
- Library stakeholders, such as City of Seattle leaders, the Library’s Board of Trustees, The Seattle Public Library Foundation and The Friends of the Library.
The survey asks patrons and Seattle residents to weigh in on services the Library provides, as well as community impacts the Library hopes to make in coming years.
“It is a critical time for community institutions like the Library to look toward the future with intention, clarity of purpose and optimism,” said Tom Fay, The Seattle Public Library’s chief librarian. “Following the extraordinary impacts of the pandemic and significant technological evolutions, we must be clear about our community’s needs related to information services and public spaces, and we must be clear about how we will meet those needs. We are excited to chart our future in partnership with the community, and look forward to serving Seattle readers and learners for generations to come.”
The Library first began conducting community listening to guide development of the plan in 2022, when Chief Librarian Tom Fay held Community Conversations at four neighborhood branches. Conversations focused on how community needs have changed since the pandemic and how the Library can be responsive to those needs.
‘FUTURE OF THE LIBRARY’ STRATEGIC FORESIGHT REPORT
Following initial community listening, the Library contracted with Houston Foresight (the University of Houston) in early 2023 to conduct a “Future of the Library” study, which was a commitment made by the Library in the $219.1M 2019 Library Levy , a plan overwhelmingly approved by Seattle voters.
This study provided the Library and its stakeholders an opportunity to better understand possible future outcomes for public libraries, including what a “preferred” future might look like.
Houston Foresight researchers identified over a dozen issues that will impact public libraries in coming years, such as climate change, artificial intelligence, social services gaps, censorship and more. The Library was then presented with scenarios in which these issues present various challenges and opportunities the organization is likely to face in its short-term and long-term futures. A team of Library leadership, staff and stakeholders considered how the organization might best respond to these scenarios and envisioned a preferable future.
The resulting foresight report has created a foundation for the development of a well-informed, nimble and impact-focused plan.
Learn more about the Library’s strategic foresight report on our website.
Following the foresight study, the Library contracted with Territory North America Inc. to develop the long-term plan. Territory conducted additional engagement to ensure the plan’s direction is resonating with Library patrons, staff, Seattle residents and other stakeholders. Territory has also worked with a third-party qualitative analyst to ensure community feedback the Library is accurately understood and reflected in the plan.
Library leadership is working with City of Seattle leaders to ensure the plan’s alignment with the City’s Comprehensive Plan update.

What happened to St. Pete’s Main Library?
Decorum calls for absolute quiet inside a public library. For St. Petersburg’s longtime main library, however, the silence has been deafening.
When the President Barack Obama Main Library closed for renovations in April 2021, shortly after its renaming ceremony, city officials expected construction to complete by late 2022 or early 2023.
However, an increasing scope, asbestos removal and a significant funding gap delayed the project. In April 2022, administrators told the St. Petersburg City Council that they were addressing those concerns and would bring a new, full proposal back for review by the end of the year.
More than two years have passed since the facility shuttered, and save for caution barriers blocking the entrance, the outside appears untouched. The issues exist behind closed doors.
Mike Jefferis, leisure services administrator, and City Architect Raul Quintana oversee the “complicated project.” They sought to explain the delay and reassure the public that a reimagined hub for the city’s seven-library system is still moving forward in an interview with the Catalyst.
“We like to say this is really a generational project,” Jefferis said. “Meaning we only have one chance to get it right.”
While the Obama Library’s exterior appears unchanged, Mike Jefferis called the building “a shell.” Screengrab, Google.
They first had to clear unexpected hurdles, starting with the realization that the facility’s bookshelves support its roof. Workers had to relocate over 100,000 books – still available upon request via the other system libraries – before progressing.
The library, built in 1964, underwent an asbestos removal project in the mid-1980s. City officials knew an encapsulated portion under the roof remained, but contractors found exponentially more than expected.
“Over the years, that asbestos kind of fell onto the ceiling and down into the cavities of the walls,” Quintana said. “We ended up having to remove all the walls internally in that building.”
The abatement process took precedence over any other repairs or remodeling efforts. That is now complete, and Jefferis said the “shell of a building” is now ready for the next construction phase.
In addition, Mayor Ken Welch was settling into office last spring and believed “there is more that we can do here.” He made additional design and programming modifications.
Cost remains an issue.
The Obama Library project’s price tag was $13.4 million in April 2022, with around a $7 million funding gap. While he couldn’t provide a new total, Quintana noted the “significant cost escalation” nationwide and said it would be higher than last year’s amount.
He said inflation and labor availability are particularly impacting projects first planned years ago. A local design firm is finishing the bidding process, and Quintana expects to present a “total package” to the city council in July or August.
That includes a guaranteed maximum price and a funding agreement. They may have to use money earmarked for other projects.
“We’re not trying to skirt the question,” Jefferis said. “We really don’t have the information.
“We’ve got to sit down with the mayor and decide – ‘hey, this is where the ballpark is on all the items we looked at last year. Are there any areas that we can make adjustments to? Are there any areas that are maybe not as big a priority as they were last year, knowing what we know now?'”
Following the asbestos “life safety factor,” Quintana noted they would implement storm windows, add parking, create closer spaces for disabled visitors, reconfigure the entrance and renovate the patio.

The interior will feature new mechanical and plumbing infrastructure. Quintana said they would also “create a hub for the technology within the library that’s central to the entire system.”
“The doggone thing will last another 50 years without having to deal with it,” he added. “There was this chain of events that really required that we do this project holistically.”
Jefferis explained that the library’s community spaces would align with the mayor’s focus on education and youth opportunities. It will also provide rooms for tutoring and convertible areas for multiple uses.
He noted that Mika Nelson, library director, “has been stuck” with the 1960s design. She is helping guide the building’s evolution alongside its collection and digital services.
Jefferis stressed that STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) offerings would be a focal point. “Mayor Welch is very committed to creating a facility that is an innovation zone in itself,” he said.
Jefferis called the wealth of information and educational opportunities libraries provide a “great equalizer.” He said every stakeholder group in the city utilizes the facilities, and having free access to knowledge is “absolutely critical.”
That underscored the motivation to keep the collection available through the renovation process. Residents can visit the Pinellas Public Library Cooperative (PPLC) website , request any materials once held at the Obama Library and pick them up from another location.
Jefferis and Quintana believe they have weathered the “perfect storm” presented by the pandemic, cost increases, supply chain disruptions, labor shortages and “more asbestos than we could have ever imagined.”
Quintana expects funding appropriations in August and to commence construction by the start of October. While an opening is at least 14 to 16 months away, he said, “The project is going to happen – we’re close.”
“There would be nothing worse than us opening this library and going, ‘gosh, we didn’t hit the mark,'” Jefferis added. “The mayor evaluated this … and really made some bold decisions to redirect and make changes. And I think that’s something that the city should be very proud of.”

I was wondering what was going on with the library! I remember going there as a child in the 60s and am praying they don’t destroy the cool mid-century modern exterior! Libraries are integral to any city and we need this project to be prioritized!
May 25, 2023at5:32 pm
Clearwater and Largo libraries are significantly newer than St. Pte
May 25, 2023at6:46 pm
I live in the neighborhood and have been sorely disappointed at the lack of progress and priority of this project. It’s been two years and now they say another year and a half. Ridiculous! I never see anyone over there working and the cost is astronomical! FAILURE of the current and previous administrations!
May 25, 2023at8:41 pm
Thank you for the update!
May 26, 2023at10:17 am
Chuck, The article explains the delays pretty well. Removing asbestos is a complicated, highly regulated process. It takes time that was not anticipated in the initial plan. Be patient, the results will be worth it.
May 26, 2023at10:29 am
Sounds like this project won’t be done in most of out lifetimes, such a waste.
May 27, 2023at5:23 am
I hope it’s worth the wait.
May 30, 2023at3:59 pm
I looking forward to visit the Library too Please invite President Obama
May 30, 2023at5:13 pm
Like the article said, the library already underwent an asbestos removal project in the mid-1980s.
June 1, 2023at11:35 am
Why is it called the Barack Obama Library? Did he donate money for it? Was he here for the dedication? Public libraries are funded through local taxes.
August 6, 2023at4:00 pm
What about the lack of a library for 3pkus years for all the people that can’t go to others. Asbestos can’t take a fraction of that time. Start with a phase then so people have something . Then go to phase 2. Then so on. Sounds like more excuses. If this was north Pinellas it would be completed. Enough said.
August 7, 2023at12:46 pm
I think they should name the library after a local historic figure. Someone who helped the city grow in some way.
Nothing against the former President, but I don’t remember that he ever even visited St. Pete.
