Puyallup Library Strategic Plan Update


The Puyallup Public Library invites you to help envision its future! The library is in the process of updating its strategic plan and wants to hear from you.

The updated plan will provide a vision and direction for the library for the next three years. If you care about the library and the services it provides, now is the time to let us know: What do you value? Is there anything you'd like to see done differently? The strategic plan will be used to determine future goals and how these are prioritized as far as limited staff and funding resources. This is what makes community input--your voice--so important.

You can participate by attending one of the Strategic Planning Open House events on Wednesday, May 27th from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm or on Saturday, June 13th from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.

Another way to participate is by completing this quick, 17 or fewer questions Puyallup Public Library Strategic Planning Community Survey. The survey will be available online until June 20th.

The Puyallup Public Library sincerely strives to provide services that are meaningful and relevant to the community. It belongs to you, and your input matters.

For more information, call Interim Library Director Rhonda Gould at 253.841.5454 or email her.
