Strategic Plan 2013-2018

Beginning in July 2013, the Library will begin working from a new Strategic Plan which will be in place until June 2018. This plan will guide the Library over the next five years. A special thank you goes to the Strategic Planning Committee who worked on the plan in 2012, and to the many Novi residents who provided their feedback in various focus group sessions.
