Strategic planning

february 2018 - may 2018


I am pleased to announce that Emmet O’Neal Library is embarking upon a strategic planning process to chart the next chapter in our mission to provide quality library and informational services for all the people of our community. This process will help the Library Board and staff to better understand opportunities to meet the current and future needs of our patrons.

Emmet O’Neal Library has engaged Clarus Consulting Group to facilitate the strategic planning process through May 2018. The initial phase of our planning process will involve meeting with key stakeholders who can provide insight into the environment in which we work, including our greatest opportunities for the future. We plan to include our Library-goers and Mountain Brook community members in the planning process and ask that you keep a look out for opportunities over the next few months.

If you have any questions about the planning process, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me or our partners at Clarus, Alice Walther (alice@clarusgroup.net) and Alaina Pineda (alaina@clarusgroup.net).

We hope that you will join us in planning the future of Emmet O’Neal Library.

Lindsy Gardner
Emmet O’Neal Library Director
