Strategic Planning for Georgia's public library services
Focus Group Notes
We urge your participation in a very important initiative for Georgia's public libraries. The Georgia Public Library Service (GPLS) is coordinating the development of a state-wide strategic plan for public library services. This planning process is intended to map out the direction of library service in Georgia and to refine the role of both GPLS and state funding for libraries over the next half decade. Toward this goal, GPLS is hosting a series of seven focus group sessions around the state.
The information gathered in these activities will be used to develop a strategic planning document that will inform the 61 library systems of Georgia, the University System Board of Regents, the General Assembly, the Governor and GPLS. Your participation will have a powerful impact on both the content and influence of this document.
