In March, the Christian County Library Board of Trustees approved a new strategic plan. The plan outlines the mission, vision, and focus areas of the library over the next
few years. These focus areas are based on past community input, and on the will of the voters of Christian County, who approved a tax levy in 2017 to fund four library
branches across the county. You can view that plan at christiancountylibrary.org/strategic-plan. The Nixa Branch will celebrate its first anniversary in May, and August will mark one year since the completion of Ozark Branch renovations. As the library continues to set aside funds and seeks private donations towards the construction of branches in Sparta and Clever, it’s also time for us to seek more input from our community as we move forward with those plans.
Beyond fulfilling our promise of four branches to voters, we want to know how you use your library, what we’re doing well and where we can improve, and what you think your public library’s focus should be over the next few years. We hope you’ll share your input to help shape the future of Christian County Library!
