Rogers Free Library Begins Strategic Planning Process

Rogers Free Library is working to determine its value to the Bristol community…. now and in the future. The process is called strategic planning, and it will take about seven months to complete.  The result will be a 5 year strategic plan for the library.  This work began a few months ago when the Trustees hired a consultant to provide guidance for the process. Kay Ellen Bullard comes to this project with over 30 years of library experience, including serving as an Assistant Director for the Providence Public Library for 16 years.

The strategic planning process will be overseen by two committees: The Steering Committee (made up of Trustees, Directors, library leadership and a community representative), and the Community Advisory Committee (made up of leaders who represent a variety of community demographics including education, business, not-for-profit, and service) and who will serve as conduits to the greater community through the formation of focus groups.  The point is to get as much input as possible, to hear as many voices as we can, and to draw some conclusions about the future of our library. 

The process includes multiple opportunities for our patrons and the citizens of Bristol to participate in this process. Right now, the Steering Committee has posted an online survey which can be accessed via Survey Monkey or by visiting the Rogers Free Library website and clicking on the survey. The survey will be active until the end of May.  Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and add your voice to this process.
