W.I.S.E. Decisions is the Douglas Library’s Strategic Plan for the remainder of 2022 through 2027. During this five-year period, the library staff and Board of Trustees will work together to better align their actions to the institution’s mission, vision, and values. W.I.S.E. Decisions also acts as a toll to communicate the library’s intentions and progress to the citizens of Hebron.
This plan was created by a subcommittee of the Board of Trustees after it conducted two surveys and a public forum to determine what the public wants and needs from its local library. A list of concrete, measurable objectives were created based on that research and organized underneath the following four themes:
The Douglas Library of Hebron is a welcoming and inclusive environment in which to pursue lifelong learning.
The library provides equitable access to information from a diverse collection of sources and creators in an emotionally safe environment.
The Douglas Library of Hebron is an integral part of the Hebron community.
The library is an active participant in local events and discussions that makes its trusted services accessible to its members and has a desire to build upon and improve society.
