Mission Statement and Strategic Plan

Ella Johnson Memorial Public Library Mission Statement

The mission of the Ella Johnson Memorial Public Library District is to promote diversity, inspire curiosity and creativity, support inquiry, and build community.

 Ella Johnson Memorial Public Library Strategic Plan 2017-2020

In 2016 the Ella Johnson Library embarked on an strategic planning project to help chart its course for the next three years. Our most important priority was our community and what the community needs from their library.  We want to structure our services and offerings to meet your needs.  With the help of Sarah Keister Armstrong and Associates, we conducted a communty analysis, conducted surveys and held focus groups to gather feedback from our community.  Below you can read about the survey and the community needs assessment:
