Roundtables on Library's Strategic Plan

Since the unanimous approval of the library's strategic plan by its Board of Trustees in November 2011, staff of the Boston Public Library has hosted roundtable conversations with community members on each of the plan's principles.

There are eight guiding principles in the library's strategic plan. The User-Centered Institution principle states, "The BPL is a user-centered institution with services that anticipate and respond to neighborhood interests and the changing demographics of the City and Commonwealth."

DIscussion leaders:

  • JoAnn E. Butler, Coordinator of Literacy Services;
  • Christine Schonhart, Director of Library Services, Branches;
  • Jessi Snow, Youth Services Coordinator

Those not able to attend the gathering are welcome to leave a comment on the BPL Compass blog at www.bpl.org/compass or send an email to compass@bpl.org. Boston Public Library's strategic plan is available for download via www.bpl.org/compass.


Boston Public Library has a Central Library, twenty-five branches, a literacy center, map center, business library, and a website filled with digital content and services.
