TCPL Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan for FY2013-2017

In June 2012, the library completed a planning process that incorporated input from library staff, trustees, customers, and community leaders. The resulting plan describes our service priorities for the next five years and how we will respond to the needs of Quincy residents of all ages.

The Thomas Crane Public Library Strategic Plan describes how the mission and goals listed below were developed. This publication also contains more details about how we will measure progress toward reaching our goals, and possible projects and initiatives we might undertake along the way.

Our Mission

The Thomas Crane Public Library is a comfortable and welcoming place to visit, where young children can discover the joy of reading, and people of all ages can satisfy their curiosity, stimulate their imagination, and connect to the online world.

Our Goals

Adults and school age children will enjoy a wide variety of popular and new materials available when, where and how they want them, with expert advice on choosing among the options.

Adults will have engaging and enjoyable cultural and recreational experiences.

Teens will have materials, programs and interactive opportunities that focus on their current interests and provide satisfying recreational experiences.

Adults will have the materials and programs they need to learn about topics of personal interest.

Adults and seniors will be comfortable using commonplace digital resources, services and devices.

Everyone will have free, high-speed Internet access in the library when, where and how they want it.

Children aged 0-7 will discover the joy of reading and will become lifelong readers.

Children and families will have a safe, clean and comfortable place to interact, play and explore books.

Adults and teens will have comfortable, clean and welcoming spaces to meet and interact with others, and quiet places for reading, study and relaxation.
