Annual Plan FY 2024
Approved by the Board of Library Trustees for Caroline County
August 9, 2023
The Caroline County Public Library brings people, information and ideas together to enrich lives, increase knowledge, and build community.
Our primary goal is to have the staff, facilities, materials, programs, and partnerships that make us leaders in educating and engaging our community.
Four influences will continue to frame services and programs offered and how we provide them this fiscal year: COVID-19, hiring new staff and rebuilding our staff team, the current economy, and the movement for racial justice in our nation.
A fifth influence this year will be the renovation of the first floor of the Central Library. This will greatly affect services at and access to the Central Library this fiscal year. While staff will provide what they can from the Central Library, more services and programs will be offered at the Federalsburg and North County Branches, along with out in the community.
