The Charlotte Mecklenburg Library is developing a 3-year Strategic Plan for library programs and services in cooperation with Mecklenburg County.

The plan will cover fiscal years 2013-2016, and be updated yearly.

Citizens can have input by completing this SURVEY and/or participating in a community forum.

Those providing feedback are eligible to enter a drawing for an iPad or a Kindle Fire.

Forums will take place:

Jan. 31 - 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Beatties Ford Road Regional Library, 2412 Beatties Ford Road, Charlotte

Feb. 5 - 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at North County Regional Library, 16500 Holly Crest Lane, Huntersville

The strategic planning process is led by a Design/Project Management Team of Library staff and a Steering Committee of community representatives.

“The Davidson Public Library is the anchor of our community, centrally located on our town green,” said Mayor John Woods. “We have many active users who care deeply about promoting reading, access to information, and the library as a place in our town. I hope users and non-users will give their input via the survey or at a forum.”
