“A strong strategic plan will chart the course to a strong future for our library,” said library director Thomas Geoffino. “The most important aspect to building that plan is community involvement.”

In addition to the survey, which will be widely distribute through electronic and print means, the library is also looking for people who are frequent and infrequent users of the library and are willing to spend 60-90 minutes thinking about ways the library can could improve its services, collections, policies and facility. These individuals will be invited to attend a small discussion and focus groups that will be facilitated by Library Development Solutions of Princeton, New Jersey.

Those interested in participating in those groups should call the library’s community relations office at (914) 813-3706 to learn about dates and times. The library will also be hosting two town meetings to which the entire community is invited to discuss the library.
