Each year, public libraries and First Nation public libraries must complete the Annual Survey of Public Libraries (ASPL). The ASPL requires libraries to report on several key metrics including: use of technology and digital services. types of activities and programs they offer.

This collection of statistics offer a glimpse into a year in the life of the Library, and its ever-evolving role in our community.

In 2022, the SDG Library developed a Strategic Plan to guide its activities over the next five years until 2026.

Several of the key strategic actions 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.

Twenty recommendations in seven areas were developed. These were:

A) Organization, Staffing and Succession;

B) Public Programs and Services;

C) Policies and Procedures;

D) Networking and Communications;

E) Branches and Facilities;

F) Technology;

and G) Governance.

In some cases, additional supporting text is provided as further rationale for the recommendation. Full details are presented in the Report.
