Library Mission, Vision, Values & Strategic Plan

SDG Library Mission

To connect communities through innovative services, literacy resources, independent learning, creative expression, leisure, and civic engagement.

SDG Library Vision

To be “the Place” in SDG for learners, seekers, and explorers.

SDG Library Values

Accessible: We strive to continually identify and reduce barriers to service and be responsive to the diverse needs of residents of all ages, backgrounds, abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities, or levels of socioeconomic status.

Equitable: We seek to provide an inclusive, non-judgmental environment in which everyone in the community feels safe, welcome, and comfortable, by focusing on building trusting, supportive connections.

Open: We commit to being honest and authentic in all our interactions, listening intently and supporting the development of genuine connections.

SDG Library Service Review Report 

In 2022 the SDG Library undertook the development of a Strategic Plan to guide its activities over the next five years (2023 – 2027).  Several of the key strategic actions identified pointed to the need to undertake a subsequent Service Review study to examine: the organization of the Library, succession planning, the delivery of programs and services, the adequacy and utilization of  facilities, and other key aspects of the operation that affect the services delivered to users. The Service Review Report can be found here.
