Planning for the Future

The Indian Prairie Public Library District has long served as a valued and trusted civic institution, celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2018. Through the years, the library has evolved to meet community interests and provide enjoyment for our residents.

To determine how best to move forward, the library staff and trustees undertook a strategic planning process. As part of that process, we asked people their opinions on how the library can contribute to the community and enhance the lives of our residents. We received feedback from over 1,400 residents. We took that feedback and added information from studies of library usage, input from staff, and best practices from other successful libraries to develop Strategic Plan 2019–2022.

The library has played a vital role in helping to make our community a better place to live. Strategic Plan 2019–2022 ensures the library continues to be a place of enrichment and possibility.
