Strategic Plan

Mid-Columbia Libraries’ Strategic Plan is our guiding business document. It defines which service responses MCL should perform to meet our communities’ needs, and sets goals and objectives for MCL to measure our success in meeting our communities' expectations. A new Strategic Plan has been developed, approved, and adopted for 2023 - 2027.
