Library Master Plan

Cover of Library Master Plan

The Westminster Library Master Plan 2017–2021 guides the Library Services Division’s investments and strategies over the coming years, shaping the delivery of services in a manner that is consistent with the city’s and department’s goal. The plan is intended as a general guideline and will be reviewed on a yearly basis for opportunities for revision as economic, social and community factors dictate. It will build on the successes of the 2007 Library Master Plan.

The Library Master Plan was received by City Council on Sept. 11, 2017.

Twenty-first century libraries must be nimble; they must be flexible and innovative with the ability to quickly respond to new challenges and new opportunities as city goals change and evolve. To that end, the master plan identifies five library goals, with accompanying action items, to pursue over the coming years:

Commitment to Literacy
Commitment to Place
Commitment to Partnerships
Commitment to Engagement and Empowerment
Commitment to Outreach
