Poynette Area Public Library Hopes to Expand on Recent Successes
Link to April 6 Poynette Press article, "Library officials look to future".
Excerpt: As the old phrase goes – strike while the iron’s hot. These days, the Poynette Area Public Library is hot, and library officials are looking to expand on their recent successes.
“People are excited,” said Poynette Area Library Director Kris Daugherty. “The buzz is very positive about the library.”
More than a dozen people met last week for a long-range planning session and enjoyed a “lively discussion” about the library’s 2010-15 strategic plan. The group previously met in October to start putting the plan together.
“We had incorporated many of the ideas from our earlier meeting and put it together in a working document,” she said. “Our board will meet and incorporate those new ideas into the document, and we will have it published and sent off.”
Every five years, the library board conducts a strategic plan, and with circulation up last year more than any other library in the South Central system, officials are looking at how to manage a growing entity.
