The Talbot County Free Library's (TCFL) new strategic plan builds upon the foundations of its FY2009-2014 predecessor in charting a course to measure our success as a community anchor and a center for education and lifelong learning.
During the five years of the previous strategic plan, TCFL has undergone tremendous improvements in the library's facilities, its physical and virtual collections, and the many different services we offer to our patrons. Many of these improvements were not tracked in the previous strategic plan.
The major accomplishment in the years covered by the prior strategic plan has been the renovation and expansion of the Main Library in Easton. We also have made extensive improvements to the library's educational services, community outreach and partnerships, collections, programming, and public computing and network.
The statistics to support these improvements are enumerated in the analysis of the previous plan's goals, objectives, and organizational competencies. While the statistical analysis of the previous plan shows great progress, it does not capture the full range of TCFL's accomplishments during this time.
To this end, we propose these new goals and objectives for FY2015 through 2017:
