Library staff and a focus group of Topsfield residents have been working on a new strategic plan for the library since November 2015. We used community input to craft a mission and vision statement, as well as goals to work toward, to help keep the library a lively meeting place and valuable resource to the community. Thank you to the participants of the focus group, as well as to all who answered our community survey. Your information and suggestions will keep the library moving forward!
The completed strategic plan is now available here, to read online.
