Kimberly-Little Chute Public Library Plan: 2011-2015

In 2011, a 7-month planning process was implemented to evaluate current library services, examine community needs, and develop a service plan, which culminated in the approval of a 5-year plan that will guide library programs and services. Thank you to everyone who participated in surveys, focus groups, interviews, etc. as part of the process! Your input was invaluable. Here are the results:
