The Library Board of Trustees formed a Long Range Planning Committee in 2011 to look at the future needs and services of the library from the perspective of library users, working towards a recommendation to the Library Board of a general plan for how the library can best meet future community needs.

GILIBRARY 2020 update 2018-2020We've gone through several updates with the current report (approved September 24, 2018) encompassing seven goals to be realized between 2018 and 2020.

  1. Getting kids ready to read and supporting them as students
  2. Keeping pace with Library technology
  3. Making changes in collections and programs to match our diverse community needs
  4. Reshaping Reference, Teen and other areas as Library Learning Center areas
  5. Improving meeting rooms and videoconferencing capabilities
  6. Taking our services out to our youngest and eldest / better transportation to the Library
  7. Establishing Library Branch and expanded Internet Branch services

Many of our goals and objectives are in progress at this time with library board discussion to take place about the last two goals to ensure they can be accomplished.
