Mission, Vision, Values and Strategic Directions

Earlier this year, our library board passed our new Mission, Vision Values & Strategic Directions.  The library board and staff developed this plan from working with all the feedback provided by the Stratford community in our community engagement process.  
SPL staff are very excited to be moving forward in fulfilling this mission and making your library the best library it can be in its current space.
