Strategic Plan

The 2022-2027 Strategic Plan was approved on June 20, 2022 by the Haywood County Board of Commissioners. The comprehensive plan is available for review and a condensed brochure is available for pick up at all library branches.

The process for developing the 2022-2027 Strategic Plan was highly dependent upon input from the Haywood County community, library cardholders, staff, and many support organizations who all contributed in significant ways. Community members completed surveys and attended Community Input Sessions, and library staff provided input and set goals for the next five years. The new plan is a concise document and provides a flexible, achievable framework for staff.

Many thanks to the Library Board of Trustees, the Haywood County Public Library Foundation, the Friends of the Haywood County Public Library, and to County Administration for their support throughout the process.
