Strategic Plans

In 2017, DGPL embarked on a year of planning. The Board of Trustees approved three planning documents within the year: Strategic Plan 2017-2020 and Capital Needs Assessment Report in August of 2017 and Financial Management Plan in January of 2018. Annual review of progress on the Strategic Plan began in July of 2018. A reordered project list for the Capital Needs Assessment was approved in July of 2018 to reflect the need to complete boiler replacement in 2019 and completion of interior lighting projects.

2022 Update: The 2017-2020 strategic plan will continue to guide the library until the next strategic plan is voted upon by the Board of Trustees. The library has created an Equity Strategic Plan, which will inform the library's full strategic plan, currently under development.
