As we transition from the old year to the new, our thoughts naturally turn to contemplation of the future and what it holds in store for us. For those of us working in public libraries, it is a good opportunity to ask, “What should we be focusing on?”, and in order to help us make that determination, we need feedback from the communities we serve. That’s where you come in.
First of all, I’d like to invite you to participate in a short (roughly five minute) survey being conducted on behalf of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Global Libraries Initiative.
The purpose of the survey is to help the Global Libraries Initiative identify opportunities to focus their current support of public libraries in ways that foster innovation and dramatically accelerate positive and lasting change in libraries throughout the U.S. and around the world.

Secondly, I’d like to invite you to provide your valuable feedback on a more local level. Currently DCPL is in the process of developing a strategic plan, and is soliciting input through public feedback sessions to help the Library set priorities for the next three years. While the majority of the sessions have already occurred, the final session takes place on Tuesday, January 8 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. at the Hairston Crossing Library, and we’d love to see you there! For more information, call 404.370.8450, ext. 2228.
Have a happy new year!
