Denver Public Library’s New Strategic Roadmap & Action Plan

Dear Library Community,

We’re pleased to share our new Strategic Roadmap and Action Plan with you. In 2019, we kicked off a strategic planning process to guide the future of the library for the next several years. Throughout this process we engaged community members, staff, and our Library Commission to inform the plan. 

The Strategic Roadmap is rooted in our mission (Together, we create welcoming spaces where all are free to explore and connect.), vision (A strong community where everyone thrives.),  and values (Welcoming, Curiosity, Connection, Equity, and Stewardship). The Strategic Roadmap will help us ensure that the library is a place that both welcomes community in our spaces but also meets our diverse communities where they are, reimagines our spaces to reflect community use, and ensures we focus on the well-being of internal staff culture while remaining responsible stewards of public funds.

We hope you take some time to explore the plan and learn more.

Sincerely,
Michelle Jeske
City Librarian
