Hopkinton Public Library FY22-27 Strategic Plan

Announcing the library's new Strategic Plan!

Last fall and winter, we asked for your feedback on library programs and services as we planned for the future. Thank you to the many people who shared their thoughts! We heard you - and we used your valuable input to create a new plan to guide the library's work for the next five years.

This plan identifies five priority areas that we will work within to achieve our mission to "inspire exploration, discovery, and engagement as we enrich and strengthen the social network of our diverse community." Those priority areas are:
  • Connecting our community 
  • Providing access to education, arts, culture, and knowledge
  • Creating an inclusive, welcoming, and safe environment for all
  • Striving to deliver an exceptional, customer-focused user experience
  • Stewarding and obtaining resources to accomplish strategic priorities
On April 1, 2021, Library Director Heather Backman gave a presentation to introduce the Strategic Plan to the community. Click here to watch a video of the Strategic Plan presentation.


Each year, library staff will create Action Plans that detail the specific steps the library will take in that year to improve operations and services to the community in our strategic priority areas. Action Plans and annual updates on our progress will be linked from this page as they are completed.
