2016 Strategic Plan


The Solano County Library is preparing a strategic plan that will guide the Library's activities for the next five years. Preparing the strategic plan is an interactive process that will solicit public and staff input about the future of library services in Solano County.


Methods for soliciting public input include a telephone survey, website surveys, community forums, focused conversations, one-on-one interviews, and stakeholder interviews, among others.





The project commenced in June 2016. It is scheduled for completion in January 2017. Project management activities including collecting various information is being undertaken during the summary of 2016. Public input will be gathered during Summer and Fall 2016. The strategic plan will be prepared in Winter 2016. See the Project Roadmap for more information.
